    Technical View:

    The S&P closed higher for the third consecutive week, fourth of the first six weeks of the year, and finally broke through 2,300 to new highs on strong breadth. We touched channel resistance at 2,320 this week formed from the Brexit lows to the August highs which may lead to a short-term pullback but the path of least resistance ultimately remains higher with 2,450 the measured target from the 2015/2016 range. On a shorter-term basis, the auction shows healthy price action with the big volume area from December/January holding on a re-test last week and moving higher. The 8- and 13-EMA are now curling higher with short-term momentum and RSI climbing above 75, although an indicator which can stay overbought for several weeks. MACD crossed bullish this week and showing the strongest upside momentum since December and on a monthly basis very similar to early 2013. Support this week will continue to be the rising 8-EMA at 2,300 and then the 20-EMA which has been the major line in the sand since the Election now sits at 2,287. Targets above would be 2,329.50 and 2,349.

    Sentiment/Internals:

    The latest AAII Sentiment Survey for the week ending 2/8 showed a 3% rise in bullish responses to 35.8%, a 3.5% rise in neutral sentiment to 36.5%, and a 6.5% drop in bearish sentiment to 27.7%. Neutral sentiment continues to trade above the long-term average while both bullish and bearish are below.  The NAAIM Exposure Index rose marginally to 96.26. Lipper Fund Flows showed inflows of $2.4B to equities, the second straight week of inflows, while taxable bonds saw $7.5B of inflows. As of Friday’s close, the NYSE had 219 new 52-week highs versus just 3 new lows while the Nasdaq ratio was at 219/22, strong breadth. The percentage of S&P 500 stocks trading above their 50-day MA rose to 70.40% while the percentage above their 200-MA jumped to 75.8%. The CBOE Equity P/C ratio closed at 0.70 and Index P/C ratio closed at 0.97. The NYSE Cumulative A/D closed at new highs while Summation closed at its highest levels since September.
