Hi Jim,

Kudos on your major bottom detector. It has once again proved very useful in nailing the bottom. :-) Would you mind sharing the formula you use to identify major and minor bottoms?

In addition, have you considered developing a "top" detector? It looks like on Friday, 2533 stocks were advancing on the NYSE, whereas only 450 were declining. If this gap widens, at some point, it seems conceivable that it would signal a top?

I'd appreciate learning your views. Thanks for your immense contributions to this board (and to others).
