    9/18/16

    Technical View:

    The S&P had a volatile week after last Friday’s sell-off snapped us out of a quiet range and finished the week range bound between two big high volume bars at the June highs and 100-EMA around 2,120 and the August range at 2,160. We bounced sharply on Monday but failed to see any follow through throughout the week with 2,090 the measured target below and major resistance above at 2,175/2,185 ahead of new highs. The major moving averages are now curling downward with the 13, 20, and 50-EMA at 2,155-2,160 and the 8-EMA trailing at Friday’s highs at 2,147. MACD crossed over bearish on the weekly and could help accelerate a move to the downside if we see more weakness. Stochastics on the daily timeframe are slightly oversold and due for a short-term bounce.

    Sentiment/Internals:

    The AAII Sentiment Survey for the week ending 9/14 showed a decline in bullish sentiment by 1.8% to 27.9%, a decline of 5.6% in neutral responses to 36.1% and a sharp jump in bearish sentiment up 7.4% to 35.9%. Bearish sentiment jumped back above the long-term average of 30.5% after trending lower for several weeks. The NAAIM Exposure Index fell sharply to 68.55. Equity fund flows for the week showed $14.4B in outflows while taxable bonds had $2.9B in outflows. The percentage of S&P 500 stocks trading above their 50-day MA fell marginally to 32.6%, the eighth week of declines in the last nine. As of Friday’s close there were 71.8% of S&P stocks above their 200-day. The CBOE Equity P/C ratio closed at 0.65 and Index P/C ratio at 1.24. The NYSE Cumulative A/D fell slightly. Summation closed at 548.70, the eight consecutive week of declines. The VIX:VXV ratio closed at 0.86.

    Mellanox Tech (MLNX) a name struggling since March but a trader opens 500 March 2017 $48/$34 bull risk reversals at $0.30 debit, and a name that has seen some unusual call buys and could make a nice M&A target.  The $2B company trades 10X Earnings, 2.6X Sales and 17.7X FCF with strong growth and impressive margins.
