  • Market Views


    Technical View:

    The S&P closed higher for the second straight week at all-time highs and now off the best start to a year since 2003. Friday’s strength came behind continued strength overseas and a strong start to earnings season from JP Morgan, Blackrock, and Delta. We’re about 1.5% above the rising 8-MA, extended, while closing above the weekly Bollinger Band for the first time since mid-October which preceded several weeks on consolidation. MACD and RSI are extended as well. Upside target remains 2,790 which is within 5 points as of Friday’s close while support below is 2,720, 2,700 and then 2,650. Reward/risk may be a little more conservative now into earnings given the run higher.

    The latest AAII sentiment survey for the week ending 1/10 saw bullish sentiment drop to 48.7% while bearish sentiment rose to 25.1%, up almost 10%. The spread between bull/bear dropped 20.6%, the first retreat since 12/6. NAAIM Exposure Index rebounded slightly this week to 58.42 but remains well off recent highs around 105. Fund flows for the week showed $12B of inflows to equities and $10.4B of inflows to taxable bonds. As of Friday’s close there were 1,578 new highs vs 135 lows, strong breadth, while advance/decline ratio was 60/40. There were 73% of stocks above their 50-MA while 69.2% above their 200-day. Summation hit its highest levels since October and remains in a bullish trend above its 8-EMA. CBOE Index Put/Call ratio spent most of the week at its lowest levels of its two-year range. Skew closed the week at 124.95, the lowest level since May.
