An overview of global equity indices concluding with a brief overview of precious metals & commodities, as it appears the most constructive charts are from countries with a large exposure to commodities.
I am a big believer that charts speak louder than words (especially those spoken by the majority of the pundits in the financial media).

Live, annotated versions of each of these charts, along with other global financial markets can be found on under the Live Charts section of the site. Click on the first chart to expand, then click anywhere on the right-hand margin of each chart to advance to the next expanded chart. On an admin note, I will [...]
With most of the major global equity indices recently breaking below key uptrend lines and/or bearish chart formations, complete with negative divergences in place, the U.S. markets are most likely not far behind. Most of these chart were published in the August 6th "Around the World in 60 Seconds" post and live versions of many of these charts, along with the major US indices not shown here, can be found under the Live Charts page.

I've added a few extra annotations to some of the global stock indices in which links to the live charts were posted yesterday.

Live links to each of these chart are available under the Live Charts page.

Well, not exactly a comprehensive overview of the global markets as I'm about to leave town and pressed for time today but here are a few key indices with some notes and annotations. As I'll be traveling over the weekend, I'll try to follow up with some additional charts either Sunday evening or early next week.
