The Markets

The volatile trading action in the market continues as we get closer to capping off the weakest January performance for the equity market on record.  The S&P 500 Index closed Thursday’s session lower by half of one percent, remaining stubborn below the 200-day moving average that was broken one week ago.  The consolidation below this important long-term hurdle is becoming increasingly threatening given that markets below this level are often ones to avoid until buy programs in the market are re-engaged.  On a closing basis, the benchmark continues to hold levels above the October lows, which mitigates the threat of a lower-low in the market, the first step that would be required in order to deem the market as being in a negative trend of lower-lows and lower-highs.  We continue to wait for the rebound attempt in the market to play out in order to get a sense of the true health of the longer-term trend as the first flush lower is never indicative of what is sustainable beyond the short-term.  We have positioned our ourselves accordingly.

Today, in our Market Outlook to subscribers, we discuss the following:

  • The breakout of the US Dollar, the headwind it imposes on stocks, and when it seasonally reverts back to a tailwind
  • Weekly Jobless Claims and the health of the labor market
  • The one scenario when investors should be long-term sellers of stocks
  • US Durable Goods Orders
  • Natural gas: The fundamental backdrop of the commodity and its period of seasonal strength
