Are Stock Market Indexes Topping?

So far, the answer is yes. Well, at least the under-performers have helped to bring about a short-term sharp pullback.

BUT, the question now is: Will the underperformers drag the broader market into a correction – maybe even a bear market?

Let’s look closer at the chart above.

As you can see, each of the stock-market indexes in the upper and lower half is testing critical up-trend support at (3). Bulls need these price areas to hold.

If support at each (3) breaks, bearish messages will be sent as small, mid and the transports have sent a bearish divergence message of late.
