  • Market Views


    Technical View:  

     The S&P with a voracious rally to close the week ended up right back near new highs, and timed well with last weeks notes on 1,970 support and an extreme oversold NYMO that set up for another one of these rallies off a higher base, the bull trend firmly intact as 2014 comes to a close. Resistance overhead remains in the 2075/2080 range before a move to 2,100 can be seen, while 2,140.5 is the first Fibonacci extension target, and 2,105 would be a target based on relative moves off corrections. The channel up remains in play for 2015.



    The latest AAII Sentiment Survey showed a drop in bullish sentiment by 6.3% to 38.7% and bearish sentiment rose 4.5% to 26.9%. The NAAIM Exposure Index marked at 65.1 last week, a sharp drop off just in time for the rally. The latest fund flow data showed $2.9B of equity fund outflows. The CBOE Equity Put/Call Ratio closed the week at 0.59, neutral reading, and Index Put/Call at 1.25 also at a neutral reading. With price reaching near a new high there are some negative divergences forming, like NYSE Cumulative A/D that has not confirmed a new high, and NYSE Summation is starting to turn positive again, but well off the recent high. NYMO closed the week just above +16, slightly overbought, while NYSE Cumulative TICK remains below its 20 day EMA and well off highs, another negative divergence.
