    Technical View:

    The S&P continued to consolidate in a narrow range this week with the indices closing marginally lower but holding the 20-EMA at the lows on Thursday. We’re still setting up under 2,400 for a range breakout which measures to 2,475 heading into May options expiration. The 50-MA below at 2,365 sets up for downside support. MACD had a bearish cross on Thursday while RSI cross back under 75 on Wednesday and the slow stochastics also turning lower. We closed the week near the low-end of value at 2,387.50 with the POC at   2,394.50 and value-area high at 2,396.50, both spots magnets on a move back higher. As we continue to look at the range that we’ve built since 4-23 we see that price move back this week to test the POC at 2,385.50 and key spot it the value-area high at 2,392 which a move above would setup for a re-test of 2,400. Healthy price action in need of a catalyst to move us out of value.

    The latest AAII Sentiment Survey for the week ending May 11th showed a 5.3% decline in bullish responses to 32.7%, a 5.1% increase in neutral responses to 37.1%, and a 0.3% increase of bearish responses to 30.2%. The NAAIM Exposure Index rose to 92.95. Lipper Fund Flows showed a $2.1B outflow from equities and a $2.2B inflow to taxable bonds. DSI bulls remain elevated at 78% but below the 3-1 highs over 90%. As of Friday’s close, the NYSE had 74 new 52-week highs versus just 41 new lows while the Nasdaq ratio was at 121/76. The percentage of S&P 500 stocks trading above their 50-day MA was 54.8% while the percentage above their 200-MA was 72.2%, its lowest level since February. The CBOE Equity P/C ratio closed at 0.57 and Index P/C ratio closed at 0.97. The NYSE Cumulative A/D closed lower for the week while Summation closed at 544.77, down for the second week. NYMO closed at -22.82.
