S&P Banks Index (BIX.X) ... 5-point box size PnF chart at this Link ... This week's trade at 375 triggers a triple top buy signal.

As I review this chart and some MM commentary in October (A) 10/18/2005 "feels like fall, it is starting to sound like the spring of 2004..", Mr. Greenspan and Mr. Bernanke may be right regarding the inversion of the yield curve and current Fed policy.

Banks look very strong here and pullbacks should be bought with support above 350.

Ugh! The S&P Banks Index (BIX.X) gets a trade at WEEKLY R2 for a second week in a row! That has equated to an impressive 3.9% gain for this group of interest rate sensitive stocks. I had no clue the banks had been this strong as my focus has been "energy related" the past couple of weeks. Banks strong even as the yield curve inverts.

I would find the banks hard pressed to extend these gains unless the 10-year YIELD ($TNX.X) can breach above the 4.60% yield level (note 02/21-2/24 and 2/13-2/17 BIX.X) and upcoming weekly R1. The current Fed Funds target is 4.50%.
