DON'T LOOK NOW, BUT A BELLWETHER index compiled by technical analyst John Roque, managing director of WJB Capital Group, continues to flash equity warning signs.

As the chart shows, the index, including Goldman Sachs /zigman2/quotes/209237603/composite GS +0.89% (ticker: GS), Morgan Stanley /zigman2/quotes/209104354/composite MS +0.95% (MS), Monsanto /zigman2/quotes/225322099/composite MON -0.21% (MON), Mosaic /zigman2/quotes/203825795/composite MOS +2.10% (MOS) and Freeport McMoRan Copper & Gold /zigman2/quotes/200215692/composite FCX +4.88% (FCX) -- and copper -- bottomed in November 2008 (1), well before the Standard & Poor's 500 in March 2009 (2), then peaked in January (3), and again in April, before the S&P 500 did the same at 1217.28 (4).

Though Roque acknowledges that the indicator represents an "imperfect" group, as of Thursday night's close, it was 6% below its February 10 low. This implies that the S&P 500 slips under 990, says Roque. That benchmark closed Friday at 1087.69.

Add the growth of new lows on the Big Board and Nasdaq, and the outlook isn't comforting. Look out below.
