    Technical View:

    The S&P had a strong week after the BOJ and Fed both continued with their accommodative monetary policies. After holding support at 2,120 and the 100-EMA we broke above near-term resistance at 2,160 and appear to have momentum to re-test the major range from August. Tech and small caps are leading with the Nasdaq and Russell hitting new highs. MACD crossed over bullish last week on a daily timeframe which could add momentum to the move higher. Support for the week below is at the 50-EMA at 2,155 and 2,140 which was a major volume area from the past two weeks. We have a low volume area on the profile from 2,145 to 2,165 which could see some chop before moving out of the range. Above Thursday’s highs the levels to watch are 2,190/2,195 which opens up a measured move to 2,240.


    The AAII Sentiment Survey for the week ending 9/21/16 showed a decline in bullish sentiment by 3.1% to 24.8%, a rise in neutral responses by 0.7% to 36.9%, and a rise in bearish sentiment by 2.4% to 38.3%. The spread between bullish and bearish responses is 13.5%, the widest spread since May/June and historically an extreme. The NAAIM Exposure Index rose slightly to 79.31 after last week’s drop. Equity fund flows for the week showed a $3.4B outflow from equities and inflows of $5B to taxable bonds. The percentage of S&P 500 stocks trading above their 50-day MA jumped back to 50% while the percentage above their 200-day MA is 74.6%.  As of Friday’s close there were 82 new 52-week highs on the NYSE against just 8 new lows. The CBOE Equity P/C ratio closed at 0.65 and Index P/C ratio closed at 1.26. The NYSE Cumulative A/D hit new highs this week. Summation closed at 571.49, the first weekly rise in eight weeks.  The VIX:VXV ratio closed at 0.77.
