    Technical View:

    The S&P closed marginally higher last week despite softness on Thursday and Friday as we held last week’s lows and the rising 20-EMA into OpEx. We continue to trade higher in a strong trend since the Election and now two weeks under the 2,400 high made on 3-1. Since breaking out in November, we haven’t had three full weeks without making a new high in the S&P so could see that level come into play. Below we’ve got a rising trendline from the 11-4 lows at 2,368.50 and the 20-EMA at 2,364.50. That would put us into a low-volume gap which retraces back to the 2-9 breakout at 2301.38. MACD is flattening and will turn higher with a move back above the recent highs while RSI has pulled back to 60. The Slow Stochastics have begun to turn higher after pulling back to the 50-level. Bollinger bands are tightening and now at their narrowest width since February 2 before we made a nearly 100-point run higher. A move above the 2,400 line would continue towards our measured move target of 2,450.

     

    The latest AAII Sentiment Survey for the week ending 3/15 showed a rise in bullish sentiment by 1.2% to 31.2%, a rise of 6.6% in neutral sentiment to 30.1%, and a fall in bearish sentiment by 7.8% to 38.7%. Bullish sentiment remains below its historical average for the third week in a row despite stocks trending towards new highs. The NAAIM Exposure Index fell again to 80.77, the lowest level since just after the Election. Lipper Fund Flows showed a small inflow of $850M to equities this week while showing outflows of $5B from taxable bonds. As of Friday’s close, the NYSE had 144 new 52-week highs versus just 20 new lows while the Nasdaq ratio was at 170/29. The percentage of S&P 500 stocks trading above their 50-day MA was 69% while the percentage above their 200-MA was 80%. The CBOE Equity P/C ratio closed at 0.61 and Index P/C ratio closed at 1.21. The NYSE Cumulative A/D closed higher for the week and just under recent highs while Summation closed lower at 320.57, the third week of decline. NYMO closed at 2.10, strong all week after touching -80 extreme on March 9.
