DAX Downtrend; fifth up day. No position was opened.
TecDAX Change back to uptrend; up day.
Dow Jones Downtrend; fifth up day.
S&P 500 Downtrend; fifth up day. Change to uptrend at 1435. Short(ab) STP 1391 LMT 1388; SL(ab) 1405; TP(a) 1360.
Nasdaq 100 Downtrend; fourth up day.
SMI Downtrend; fourth up day. Short(ab) STP 6673 LMT 6670; SL(ab) 6725; TP(a) 6550.
All Ordinaries Downtrend; inside day.
There are more signals than just the S&P and the SMI, but two shorts at a time are enough.

INTC short Small up bar. The 38% retracement of the recent down swing lies at 20.50, and the 50% retracement at 20.89, which is about the target I expect for the rebound. SL(b) 21.71.
ETFC short No entry, yet. Setup is still good. Short(ab) STP 8.01 LMT 7.97; SL(ab) 8.22; TP(a) 7.60.
DTV short Swingtrader’s dream: price has retraced 50% of the last swing back to longer-term resistance (April 2012) at a round number ($50) on declining volume, and failed at the fourth touch of a down trendline. Short(ab) STP 49.35 LMT 49.25; STP(ab) 49.96; TP(a) 48.18.
