What a difference a few hours make. We've gone from a signals desert to a wealth of changes, involving the S&P 500, the Nasdaq 100, the Fear Index and the dollar against the yen.
The S&P 500 (SPY) and the Nasdaq 100 (QQQQ) have moved to bear phase on Person's Proprietary Signal after five days on the bull side. The phase switch has been accompanied by intraday swings exceeding 2%. The Fear Index (VIX) has moved to bull phase, as one would expect since it tracks SPY so closely (and inversely).
In forex, the dollar has turned bearish against the yen after a two-day bull whipsaw. The move brings Person's Proprietary Signal back in line with the parabolic sar.
