The S&P 500’s 5%+ rally so far in May has left internals overbought for the time being.  Below is a quick look at our 50-day moving average spread chart for the S&P over the last 12 months.  We’re currently right at two standard deviations above the 50-DMA.  Note that this reading got up to three standard deviations above the 50-day last summer before seeing a sharp multi-month pullback.
