The Situation

​​Pressure is still on the Canadian TSX Small Capitalization Index as all the
moving averages are still declining...​

​​On November 16 2015, we had the 20 DMA ​​(Day Moving ​Average - ​yellow
​line) ​crossed below the 50 DMA (Day Moving ​Average - ​red line) , another
​bad omen...  We are still below the 200 DMA (Day Moving Average -
​Green Line)​ since September 19 2014.
( See first chart below )

The TSX Small Cap Index is within a downtrend channel that started back
on October 9 2015 with 410.03 as support and ​476.90 as resistance. We need to stay below the 50 DMA (Day Moving Average - Red Line) now at 476.25 to keep a negative technical set up. ( See first chart below )

Few realize that in fact, the TSX Small Capitalization Index behavior is following the trend in Oil prices as shown by the first chart below...​

​​​​The TSX Small Capitalization started to underperform ​​since ​January 7 ​​compare to ​the Mighty TSX60 Index
​( so on a relative basis) and the ​20 DMA (Day Moving Average - Yellow Line) ​​
​on that Ratio turned ​downward on January 11. ​​But Only getting back above the 200 DMA (Day Moving Average - ​Green Line)​ now at 0.6479 will change the Major Bear Trend...

​​​​But the most interesting technical factor is that we tested last week the Major Support on a relative basis
​(Ratio of the TSX Small Capitalization over ​the Mighty TSX60 Index). For Technical strenght, we need to stay above that old Major Support reached back on November 2008.
