The Situation

​This Indicator reached only 20.4% on August10 2011, the lowest spot level of the past
​five years and far away from the last record level on July 16 2014 at 84.6% when
​SP500 was at 1982.

​​The main technical indicators like the moving average of the Bullish Percentage Index
​of the SP500 Index  are showing some sign of weaknesses since April 28...​

​​This ratio turned on a bearish trend since June 5 and now stand ​at 58.6%
​​(61.4% for the 7 DMA - Day Moving Average).

That Indicator is in bearish mode and reached level not seen since ​
​October 5 2011 when the Mighty SP500 was at 1165 level.

Also observe the divergence between the % Bullish Index and the Mighty SP500; lower highs from the Index and higher highs from the SP500 since March 2015.

But getting over the 200 DMA on that Indicator at the end of April 2015 ( ​red line chart below ) have been in the past a first warning sign ​of overbought conditions building up.

SP500 Index closed below its 200 DMA on August 20, a bad tecnical omen indeed. Also observe the Broken Rising Wedge on SP500 on August 21.​ ( See Bottom Chart  - 50 DMA Blue Line​​  -  200 DMA Red Line ).

​​But the most interesting factor is that taking the ratio of the Bullish Percentage Index ​of the SP100 Index over the SP500 Index, we had that ratio near the high of the past 5 years at the end of June 2015; zone associated with market turmoil. We were warned but did not listen...  ( See second chart below - ellipses )
