Technical Picture - NR7 - Contraction Ahead of Expansion

SPX carved out NRIB (NR7) on lower volume which implies price/volume contraction ahead of expansion. Direction is not clear with the 50 DMA hovering over price. We are overbought. Keep a close eye on the VIX as it tests the lower side of the symmetrical triangle.

The $USD has weakened and gold/energy/commodities are bouncing.

I'm getting the feeling that we're gonna muddle around here for a while.

It looks that way. I'd like to see us go back and fill the gap from 4 days ago and continue the uptrend from there. USD weakness today getting in the way.

Yup, muddy day thus far.

Let's see what happens at the end. Volume dead.
