Thanks to reader Bryan for enclosed Bradley info.

Submitted 2012/07/01
The Bradley Model indicates a rally until late July with more distribution and then downside until late January 2013 then a rally until late June 2013. The top of the market this year was the exact Bradley Model turn date which is impressive. Of course the move in commodities Friday is something to note. I have read a lot of articles and data which points to 2013 as being a possible long-term market top (Fibonacci spirals and cycle theory) This is probably the most interesting piece I have read although hard to prove with any accuracy:

Submitted 2012/07/22
Bradley model top is 07/28 and those have +/- 4 days accuracy so let’s see if it calls the top as well as it did for 03/16. Risk on sectors such as Basic Materials and Technology are lagging severely while money is funneling into Utilities. We have not yet seen a wash-out selling spree similar to previous years. The only wildcard is this being an election year so who knows what may be going on behind the scenes.

SPX weekly chart shows ongoing vacillation and lack of consensus.
The impending directional move is getting closer and it should be down.
I previously thought the overbought USDX signalled more equity rally this
year but looks like I’m wrong as bearish weekly & monthly SPX etc charts
are increasingly influential and dominate all else.

Market intervention has only postponed the inevitable. Despite short &
medium term market vacillation – the following remains a constant :
● USDX monthly indicators [ie big picture] continue to warn of significant
long term USD upside. (thus EURUSD & AUDUSD etc bearish)
● SPX monthly indicators [ie big picture] continue to warn of significant
long term downside for equities which will be worse than 2008.
SP500 downleg expected to continue next week onwards.
Bearish SPX and EURUSD still dominating.
SPX 8 hour chart down leg strengthened further yesterday.
