Why positive breadth won't help the bull case

Mid-week market update: There was a lot of skepticism in response to my last post (see How many pennies left in front of the steamroller?). Much of it was related to comments relating to positive market breadth.

I am in debt to Urban Carmel who pointed out back in May that the Advance-Decline Line tends to move coincidentally with the major market indices. Here is an updated five-year chart of the 52-week highs-lows, and the NYSE Advance-Decline Line. The peaks in both of these indicators have either been coincidental, or lagged the stock market peak.
