    Technical View:

    The S&P closed lower for the week, its third weekly decline in the last month, as mounting geopolitical concerns pressured markets and gave a lift to safe havens like gold and treasuries. We have several caution flags showing after this past week including our first close below the 50-EMA since 11-8 and the 20-MA is sloping downward and nearing a cross of the 50-MA for the first time since September. MACD broke down below the 3-27 lows on Friday while RSI hit its lowest levels since 11-4. Looking at our Fibonacci levels, we closed right at the 23.6% retracement of the move from the November lows at 2,326. The channel we’ve been watching from the 3-1 highs to the 3-27 lows is still intact with support lower at 2,310 but closing on Friday under the channel’s mid-point. Trend support from the 12-30 lows has been broken. Volume in the SPY since 3-31 has been strong with down days showing larger footprints than up days. Major support below remains the Feb. breakout and 100-MA at 2,300 while resistance above is 2,350, 2,375, and then 2,400.

    The latest AAII Sentiment Survey for the week ending 4/12 showed a modest increase in bullish responses, up 0.7% to 29% while neutral responses rose 1.6% to 33.6% and bearish responses fell 2.2% to 37.4%. Bearish sentiment remains over 7% above the long-term average. The NAAIM Exposure Index jumped sharply to 86.7 from 67.47. DSI sentiment for the SPX dropped to 56% after peaking over 90% in early-to-mid March while Bond sentiment rose to 46%, both right at the majority line. Lipper Fund Flows showed a small inflow to equities this week of $1.4B while showing inflows of $1B to taxable bonds. As of Friday’s close, the NYSE had 53 new 52-week highs versus just 27 new lows. The percentage of S&P 500 stocks trading above their 50-day MA was 46.91%, dropping sharply at the end of the week while the percentage above their 200-MA was 69.5%, below the 50-MA. The CBOE Equity P/C ratio closed at 0.96, just the third spike to that level since June 2016. Index P/C ratio closed at 0.88.
