    Technical View:

    The S&P had its worst week in months last week and tested key 2,440 volume support which is also the lower end of the 2017 rising wedge pattern, so a break beneath last week’s low sets up for further selling pressure with 2,425 and 2,400 the next notable levels.  A deeper correction would put 2,350 in focus as 18 month trend support, the 200 day MA, and a 38.2% Fibonacci from the Election low to recent high.  The S&P needs to close above and recapture the 2,460 to shift back into a bullish mode.  A move under 2,400 would break the daily cloud for the first time since November.

    The latest AAII Sentiment Survey showed 33.7% bullish, -2.4% from the week prior and below the 38.5% historical average.  NAAIM pulled back to 83.95 after hitting elevated levels again, its lowest reading since May 3rd.  Equities saw $2.8B of outflows last week, a trend since mid-July.  As if Friday’s close just 57% of stocks remain above the 200 MA and 38% above the 50 MA.  New highs of 51 compared to new lows of 280.  The CBOE Put/Call Ratio moving averages showed a sharp jump in the 50 day MA to 0.649.  NYSE Cumulative A/D broke its 40 day EMA for the first time since March, and will need to recover quickly or risk a deteriorating market.  NYMO hit -82.1 last week, an oversold extreme, and closed the week -69.3.  NYSE Summation broke its 8 EMA well in advance of the sell-off, and continues to be an excellent signal.  S&P stocks above the 50 MA at 218 hit the lowest level since 215 in April.  Cumulative TICK pulled back but remains in a bull signal above its rising 20 EMA.  The VIX:VXV ratio spiked up to 0.99 last week which tends to precede market bottoms.
