Time for Equities to Pullback, if they are...

gm- Heading into expiration.. increasing signs of stalling out, and if equities are going to fall in December, it should occur in the next 3-5 days which in turn should lead to a final push back to new highs into year-end.  For this am, ahead of this am's Housing Start data.. US Futures mildly positive to start expiration while most of Europe also Green, but despite Europe's 2% gains this week, indices remain negative for 2016 while SPX is up nearly 11%-   Treasuries are showing signs of making their first gains in 7 days today, with yields dropping across the globe..  US Dollar index is unchanged today while Crude has inched its way back to positive, back above $51, with Goldman raising their outlook for Oil prices-  Overall, very little progress in either direction for US indices in the last week with S&P just 9 ticks higher than the same time last Friday, and above-average signs of some slowing in momentum after this rise-  Counter-trend sells per Demark showing some confluence in DXY, TNX and SPX for the first time since early November, and we'll see if these confirm and turn down-  For today, pre-mkt strength in JBL, ADBE, while weakness in HON and ORCL- Key areas for traders-  S&P 2268 on upside and 2247 on downside-  Getting above 2268 would spur on prices to 2278-9, while under 2247 particularly on a close, would open up Downside for 2223-  Bottom line.  the US Dollar index and Treasury yields have been two of the biggest drivers in the near-term so watching these carefully for clues of reversals and/or further acceleration will shed light on what could happen for Equities- Let me know if you have any questions
