The TRIN indicator measures downside vs. upside in terms of volume and breadth. A rising
TRIN shows the bears have the upper hand. I like to watch the 21 and 55 day TRIN readings to
determine how oversold the market may be. Through today, the NYSE TRIN 21 and 55 day m/a
readings are showing a heavily oversold market. Markets can of course get more oversold, but
this TRIN measure, when viewed historically, has reached levels consistent with a market that
may be close to a short term bottom. $TRIN
