    Technical View:

    The S&P traded in a very narrow range last week, unable to make upside progress but did establish some support on a 20 day EMA test that saw a strong reversal candle. As shown below we are back in the 2015 volume by price zone that stocks have traded for the majority of the year and current upside resistance levels are 2,100/2,115/2,130. Support levels into this week are 2,080/2,065/2,020. The more near-term moving averages are upward sloping, while the 200 day MA is flat, and if that can regain an upward slope it would be a major positive. MACD remains near the zero line and looking for a bullish crossover.


    The latest AAII Sentiment Survey shows bullish sentiment up 1.6 to 32.4% and bearish sentiment down 4.5 to 26%, each below historical averages while neutral sentiment remains well above the norm. The NAAIM Exposure Index saw a sharp jump to 70.45, highest reading since June 3rd, one reason for caution as this has tended to be a contrarian indicator. Fund flows for the latest week showed $2.9B of inflows into equity funds, stopping a two week streak of outflows. As of Friday’s close 208 new highs compared to 96 new lows, improving breadth, and now 59.8% of stocks trading above the SMA50, and just 40.3% above the SMA200. The CBOE Equity Put/Call ratio closed the week at 0.76, in the middle of the normal range, while Index Put/Call at 1.4 is elevated. NYSE Cumulative A/D saw strong gains last week despite a flat market, a positive signal, and approaching the early November highs. NYMO closed the week at 27, a slight overbought market. NYSE Summation was also able to show progress last week as it bottomed and moved back into a positive trend. NYSE Cumulative TICK made a new high as well. The other major positive going for stocks is seasonality, a period currently when markets have done very well.
