Several indexes broke several key  moving averages.

Yesterday saw 695  stocks rise and 2135 fall on the NYSE. NASDAQ saw 863 rise and 2213 fall.

The QPI10 Day Moving Average of Breadth (10DMA) is no longer  invested  and moved to cash with last Wednesday’s close. For a move to cash from buy, the 10DMA needed to have two days in row below -200 and that happened on Wednesday’s close. For now, the best offense is a good defense.
