As of Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at the close of trading EquitySurge™ has continued a strong sell signal for USA equities.
Today all major equity markets again made new all-time-highs.
However there was an important catch today in this seemingly never-ending rally higher in stocks. The VIX Volatility Index spot (current month) futures rose by 11.5 percent today, even as all the major stock indexes climbed to new highs.
Also, the VIX Index closed at 10.58 on January 27, 2017. Since then the S&P500 Index has climbed by more than 50 points, but the VIX Index has not made a lower closing low. This is a bearish divergence for stock prices, and one that long equity holders should take serious note of.
