Bulls fold again with another long red candle, bears make a lower low #W2.

Gap between the Senkou Span A & B, increases #W3.
Gap between Tenkan Sen and Kijun Sen, steady #W2.


Index dives again below the Tenkan Sen and makes aother lower low.

Looking Forward into this Week:

Chikou Span is a long way from the price line  #W2.

Senkou Span A & B  crossing or deflecting helps the Bull or Bear Causes respectively #W3.
A pause to let the Tenkan Sen catch up is the next event favoring the Bulls #W2.


Bears look to keep the index below the Tenkan Sen, and make some lower lows #W2.
An oversold bounce or a bullish cross of the Tenkan Sen #W2, is the next Bull hope.
