  • Market Views


    Technical View:  


    The S&P has not bounced 145 points off the key support 1,820 suggested during the sell-off, and done so in rapid fashion. It closed last week above the downtrend and most of the key moving averages, and a 8/20 EMA bullish crossover is nearing at the 1,930 level, support on a pullback. The close last week was just below the 50 day SMA, and the upper daily Bollinger Band stands at 1,975 as 2nd resistance, followed by 1,985 price resistance, and finally the 2,000 and 2,020 levels once again back into play. The move has kept the bullish long term trend intact, and potential for a rally through year end exists, though currently a move off overbought and overly bullish sentiment is required for a healthier move.



    The latest AAII Sentiment Survey showed a surge in bullish sentiment, up 7 to 49.7%, well above the 39% historical average, and bearish sentiment plunged to 22.5%, down 11.2, well below its 30.5% historical average. The NAAIM Exposure Index, after making a multi-year low, jumped to 41.38 from 9.97. The latest week of fund flows shows $8.2B of outflows from equity funds. As of Fridays close 186 new highs compared to 77 new lows, 38.8% of stocks above the SMA50 and 45.1% above the SMA 200, a lot of work to be done, so although a lot of leadership stocks are trading up near new highs, still a lot of damaged names out there. The CBOE Equity and Index Put/Call ratios both finished the week at Neutral readings. NYSE cumulative A/D climbed strong last week, NYSE Summation cleared the 5 day EMA, but NYMO closed the week at 68, very overbought.
