Wal-Mart ( WMT) ($72.98) remains buy-rated and below its 50-day and 200-day SMAs at $75.97 and $73.83. My semiannual value level is $61.55 with a semiannual pivot at $75.96 and weekly risky level at $76.54.

Over the weekend I found this graphic on http://www.advisorperspectives.com/dshort/. Look at the highs and lows of the ratio between assets allocated to equities vs. assets allocated to money markets. As the S&P 500 peaked in the year 2000 this ratio peaked at 3.09% then the bubble popped. At the S&P 500 bottom in late-2002 this ratio was down to 1.38. Just before the S&P 500 peaked in late-2007 this ratio hit 3.39. In 2009 after the S&P 500 bottomed the ratio slumped to 1.18. Today the ratio is at an all time high at 3.49, which is another fundamental warning of significant risk in the stock market.
