    8/14/16

    Technical View:

    A very quiet week for the S&P which saw us close basically flat after weakness early in the week brought a re-test of the rising 8-EMA. We remain coiled below 2,190 and above the prior breakout at 2,175 with 2,200 the measured move above from the April/June range. MACD looks ready to cross back over bullish on the daily timeframe and RSI remains steady above 60. The Fibonacci extensions from the February lows measure to 2,235 and 2,270 which would be longer-term targets to keep in mind as we enter the latter months of 2016. Support below this week will be the rising 8 and 13-EMA at 2,178/2,174 while the 20-EMA at 2,167 will be key, the same spot where we found support on the 8-2 sell-off.

    Sentiment/Internals:

    The latest AAII Sentiment survey showed bullish responses up 1.5% to 31.3%, bearish responses flat at 26.8%, and neutral responses down 1.5% to 42%. Bullish and bearish Reponses remain below long-term averages while Neutral is elevated, 31% vs 42%.  The NAAIM Exposure Index was relatively flat for the week to 92.86.  Lipper Fund Flows showed a $3.8B outflow from equities and a $5.2B inflow to taxable bonds. The percentage of S&P stocks above their 50-day MA was 71% while the percentage above their 200-day MA was 79.6%, both slightly higher for the week. NYSE Summation fell to 1,065.23, the third week of declines. As of Friday’s close the number of stocks on the NYSE making new highs was 163 versus just 9 new lows, the Nasdaq showing similar breadth (118/31). Cumulative TICK is nearing new highs. NYMO closed the week at -11.53, third straight week closing below zero.
