    Technical View:

    The S&P closed moderately lower on Friday and suffered its worst week since before the Election amid concerns from Washington surrounding the GOP-led healthcare bill. Wednesday’s candle shifted a lot of the near-term momentum away from the bulls as we broke down under trend support from the November lows and below the 8-, 13-, and 20-EMA with all three sloping downward around the 2,360 level. Also, as noted on Thursday, get got our first 8/13 EMA crossover since 10-11. The 50-EMA is just below at 2,331 and then targeting the 2-9 breakout level at 2,301 and the 100-EMA at 2,286. Moving back above the moving-average cluster at Friday’s high would target the recent high-volume node at 2,385 and then 2,400.

    The latest AAII Sentiment Survey for the week ending 3/22 showed a 4.1% increase in bullish sentiment to 35.3%, a 4.1% increase in neutral sentiment to 34.2%, and an 8.2% decline in bearish sentiment to 30.5%. Neutral sentiment remains above the long-term average while bullish sentiment is just below the average. The NAAIM Exposure Index fell again this week to 68.68, the lowest level since before the Election. Lipper Fund Flows showed outflows of $1B from equities, the first week of outflows in more than five weeks. Taxable bonds saw inflows of $8.3B. As of Friday’s close, the NYSE had 67 new 52-week highs versus just 25 new lows while the Nasdaq ratio was at 72/44, more even breadth than we’ve seen recently.
