The Markets

The equity market readopted a defensive posture following Monday’s rally amidst headlines that the Fed may take a more aggressive approach to tighten monetary policy in order to combat soaring inflationary pressures.  The S&P 500 Index shed 1.26%, erasing the prior session’s gain and causing investors to reconsider exposure to high multiple growth stocks.  Consolidation above the recently broken 200-day moving average is still implied, for now, however, a close below recent minor horizontal support at 4530 has been confirmed.  Momentum indicators, while maintaining rising trends following the breakout above declining trendline resistance in the middle of March, continue to roll over as the near-term buying demand stalls.  As we have been reporting, we are on the lookout to become much more conservative in the portfolio for the back half of the second quarter (May/June), but we don’t feel that we have reached the point yet where retrenching is appropriate.  The market will be reluctant to adopt a bearish bias ahead of and/or during the release of earnings, which will start to flow in the coming week.  Consolidation around moving averages, as is presently being witnessed, is likely until earnings themselves cause the catalyst to either fuel a breakdown or breakout as we near our timeframe to seek to become more conservative in May and June.

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

  • The breakout in the cost of borrowing above a band of resistance
