Indices higher, yet breadth tilted negative, with More Declining issues

2 hours left. We see S&P still up 0.70%.. But Decliners are outweighing advancing issues.  Breadth is actually DOWN on this rally today.   Volume is spread around 2/1 positive which is giving the ARMS index a reading of .48. Very low.   Sectorwise, Tech regaining some of the decline in the last couple days, while the surge in Healthcare continues.  Only Utilities and Real estate are down.. But Utilities are outpacing Technology for the week.. At +1.69% vs 1.56% for Tech.. And Telecom has been this week's top performer-   The dollar's decline continuing today.. While yields have been scaling back higher.. So a move to 2.68-2.70% looks likely for 10yr yields and that could coincide with a yield peak as well as Stock peak early next week..  For now..  The key takeways are that this week's Transport and SOX declines should be tough to regain in just 1 day as these both broke important uptrends.  Breadth is now slumping and something to take seriously.   VIX meanwhile , down only 2%.. A far cry from normal times when a 0.75-1% rally would bring a huge decline in VIX.. So today holding up very very well-  OVerall today's stats paint a far less rosy picture than one would guess by just looking at price alone
