Trollatunga, if I understand you correctly you want to create an index based on a certain number of stocks of your choosing. Is this correct? If so, the following should give you a start. The following is an "index" consisting of AAPL and RIMM. It is a simple average of the two stocks. If you want a more elaborate weighting you'll have to check SF's functions and indicators to see if you can accomplish that.

set{x, ind(AAPL,close)}
set{y, ind(RIMM,close)}
set{z, x plus y}
set{myindex, z divided by two}
draw myindex

Regards
Max

"The DOW could potentially go up a tad 1 more day but it would require divergence from the S&P and the NAZZY because those muthas got nowhere to go but down."

May very well be but remember that RSI2 like any other oscillator can get stuck on OB/OS for long periods of time.

Duke, right now the monthly bars and volume tell me that we're still in a bull market but price isn't making much headway. Currently the Feb, 2009 price bar is bullish but volume is unimpressive. What I would like to see for the bull to continue is the February bar closing bullish above 1150 on higher volume than the January bar. I see no case for the bear side until we get a double top with volume confirmation OR a monthly bar closes below 1000 on high volume.

Kevin, while I didn't give specific rules for confirming double tops/double bottoms the fact is that most SPX bull/bear markets reverse when a double bottom/top sets up. When you learn how to analyze price and volume action, particularly at major support and resistance points, you'll be far ahead of the crowd. In March, 2003 I think we can all agree that a potential double bottom was in place. Now look at the volume from the time period October, 2002 to March, 2003. It was abundantly clear to me that on the March, 2003 bar that the bulls were winning. Actual confirmation was not received for another couple of months until resistance levels were cleared but the point is...commit a decent percentage of your bankroll to the bull side. Then go all in when it's confirmed. In November of 2007 we again had a potential double top set up...again with volume confirmation...and at/near the 2000 highs. What do you think the probabilities were that at LEAST a decent down side correction was in place? Finally, in March 2009 we again had a double bottom set up. Look at the huge up volume in March, 2009. Also note that at the time of the reversal, price had just taken out the 2003 bull market low. Again, what do you think the probabilities were of at least a large bear market correction? HTH

Frankly I'm a little surprised at the lack of response to my post. I guess I shouldn't be. Many people tend to dismiss the simplicity of my approach as too simple. Yet my approach will beat the pants off of any MA crossover system or price crossing above/below an MA EVERY TIME. If you had been paying attention to a simple monthly bar chart with volume and major support and resistance levels you would have seen obvious distribution in volume and price at the 2000 and 2007 highs which coincidentally were at the nearly the same price level. Likewise, in March 2009 the decline was stopped on huge institutional buying at nearly the same price levels of the 2003 bull market. Go ahead and ignore me. I'll continue to profit.

How about something a lot simpler. Notice how in March 2003 the SPX made a double bottom on high volume. Then in November, 2007 the SPX made a double top on high volume at the same price levels as the 2000 high. Then in March, 2009 the market again made a double bottom on very high volume at the bull market lows of 2003. KISS
