Bank Downtrends Still Dominant

Despite last week's rally in the major trader/broker banks, let's notice that none of the upmoves in Bank of America (BAC), Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) inflicted significant damage to the still-dominant downtrends.

You can see the near- and intermediate-term resistance levels labeled on the enclosed charts. Only BAC made a new low (4.92) for the bear phase, and then staged a 15% multi-day rally to 5.65, but appears to have stalled right at its nearest-term hourly resistance line.

While the action in BAC is promising, the price structure needs to hurdle 5.82-.92 to damage the downtrend and the next round of a potentially violent short squeeze.
