  • Market Views


    Technical View:

    The S&P fell for the second consecutive week as uncertainty surrounding China, the Fed, and quarterly earnings pressured markets which have seen breadth weaken after months of sideways trading. We traded down on Thursday to the November 2015 highs at 2,116.50, which was resistance in June as well, but ultimately broke out of a channel from the May lows.  The falling 13- and 20-EMA at 2,147-2,151 acted as resistance on Friday and sloping downward as the trend shifts. We got a 20/50 EMA cross at 2,155 as well recently and a breakdown under recent targets a move back to 2,070.  RSI has weakened under 50 and MACD crossed bearish last week and neither anywhere near oversold. Targets above resistance would be 2,180 and then eventually 2,200.


    The AAII Sentiment Survey for the week ending 10/12 showed a 3.3% decline in bullish sentiment to 25.5%, a 2.5% decline in neutral sentiment to 40.8%, and a 5.8% rise in bearish sentiment to 33.7%. Bearish sentiment is now above the long-term average while bullish sentiment is 13 points below average. The NAAIM Exposure Index rose to 86.53. Equity fund flows for the week showed a $3.4B outflow from equities and outflows of $2.1B from taxable bonds. The percentage of S&P 500 stocks trading above their 50-day MA fell to 29%, the lowest since the Brexit, while the percentage above their 200-MA fell to 64.2%.  As of Friday’s close there were 50 new 52-week highs on the NYSE versus 20 new lows.
