    Technical View:

    The S&P traded in a narrow range all week as we digested the first round of quarterly earnings and a stronger dollar which hit 7-month highs. We continue to hold key support at 2,120 and the 100-EMA at 2,135 although sentiment and internals continue to advocate caution. The 20-EMA has been resistance at 2,145 and we have a short-term trend resistance at 2,165 should we push higher. On a longer-term timeframe, we continue to consolidate above major resistance from 2015 and entering a seasonally strong period for stocks. However, Macro headwinds from potential rate hike in December to the November Presidential Election continue to weigh. Key support below for the week is 2,120, 2,100, and then 2,070 while resistance above is 2,145, 2,165, and then 2,175.


    The AAII Sentiment Survey for the week ending 10/19 showed a 1.7% drop in bullish sentiment to 23.7%, a 2.4% drop in neutral sentiment to 38.4%, and a 4.1% increase in bearish sentiment to 37.8%. Bullish responses remain far below the long-term average of 38.5% while neutral and bearish are 6-7 points above. The NAAIM Exposure Index fell to 63.7 this week, the lowest level since May.
