  Sorry for the delayed posting, …. I am working on organizing/assembling new databases, spreadsheets, and charts  as I am working on new (my own) indicators and models …  toss in family commitments, both expected and unexpected, and these got stuck in draft form when I got behind.   I am posting these in date order for reference.   I will complete this after I post Monday, 4/25/2016.
