THURSDAY’S FLOW ONCE AGAIN WAS MIXED. AN ACTIVE SESSION TODAY LED BY FLOW IN UNUSUAL NAMES WHICH IS COMMON DURING EARNINGS SEASON. ETF PROTECTION WAS STILL VISIBLE BUT NOWHERE NEAR AS ACTIVE AS WE SAW YESTERDAY. JUST NORMAL EARNINGS POSITIONING GOING ON AS WE SHOULD SEE FLOW CLEAN ITSELF UP AS WE GET THRU SOME OF THE MAJOR NAMES REPORTING. INTERMEDIATE FLOW REMAINS AT BULLISH EXTREME LEVELS, SHORT-TERM SENTIMENT CLOSE TO A POTENTIAL SQUEEZE SIGNAL, AS THE TUG OF WAR (CHOP) CONTINUES.
