Bullish breadth and momentum divergences in the short term

February 14, 2016

The Russell 2000 Small Cap Index has set up with bullish divergences on its 14 day RSI and one of its moving average breadth indicators (the % of stocks above their 50 day moving average).

This repeats a set up in late September 2015 (dashed line) from which the index managed an 11% rally into early December.

  • The long term moving averages having rolled over, so I wouldn’t play them from the long side, we are in a bear market
  • I expect a rally to be smaller and over quicker but I would wait for a better entry opportunity on short positions
  • This means when this divergence has unwound and price is closer to the long term moving average (e.g. 40 week average)
