The Situation

I found a quite interesting trend for the TSX60 Composite Index in terms
​of Behavior lately.​ In fact, what we can observe is that the Trend for
the Index is exactly the same Technical Pattern as the TSX Buyback
Index as shown by the chart below.

An also observe the performance of the two Index as of October 6:
( from TMX Money web site )​

The performance is almost the same.... So for me, the Canadian market behavior is like the behavior of the Buybacks from Corporations ....
​​​​​​​​​​​An interesting article was written back on May 21 2105 on that subject
​by Ian McGugan from the Globe and Mail:
​The buyback express appears destined for a bumpier, slower ride

The TSX is still within a downtrend channel that started back in April 2015 and in a dead cat bounce from oversold condition on a short term basis Mainly because of my TSX Trendicator was getting below the 3.0 level..​​ ​( See Chart - Channel​​ ).

But the most interesting technical factor is that​​ we are testing a Major Trendline on a Monthly basis that started back in March 2009 on the TSX. ( See Chart Below - Thick Amber Line ).
