The resiliency of the S&P 500

Preface: Explaining our market timing models  We maintain several market timing models, each with differing time horizons. The “Ultimate Market Timing Model” is a long-term market timing model based on the research outlined in our post, Building the ultimate market timing model. This model tends to generate only a handful of signals each decade. The Trend Asset Allocation Model is an asset allocation model that applies trend following principles based on the inputs of global stock and...

Just a hiccup?

Mid-week market update: The S&P 500 has shown negative seasonality at the end of June. So far, the index has been tracking its historical pattern well in 2021. The market took fright last week from the abrupt hawkish tone of the FOMC statement and subsequent Powell press conference last week. By Friday, it had become deeply oversold (see Boo! Powell scares the children!) and recovered this week.   Was that it? Is the seasonal weakness over? A broad recovery The analysis of...

Pigs get slaughtered…

Mid-week market update: Traders have an adage, “Bulls make money. Bears make money. Pigs just get slaughtered.” It’s time for equity bulls to be near-term cautious on stocks, though I expect any market weakness to be relatively shallow.  In my weekend update, I had set out a number of tripwires (see Time is running out for the bulls). So far, the S&P 500 is struggling to overcome resistance even as it exhibits a negative RSI divergence.  On the other hand, the 10-year Treasury...

Here comes the retest

Mid-week market update: I wrote on the weekend (see Where’s the fear?) that the relief rally that began last Thursday was unconvincing and my base case scenario called for a retest of the lows. The retest appears to be underway.   Spikes of the VIX Index above its upper Bollinger Band (BB) were signals of an oversold market. Such episodes were resolved in two ways. Strong market rallies were characterized by price momentum and definitive violations of the VIX 20 dma (blue arrows). On...
