The Markets

Another tough day for the equity market as stocks continue to search for a floor following the more aggressive than expected Fed forecast released on Wednesday.  The S&P 500 Index shed 1.72%, quickly closing in on the June low that has been widely scrutinized by the market in terms of whether or not it will hold as support.  Momentum indicators have become oversold with the Relative Strength Index falling back below 30 for the first time since January.  Characteristics of a bearish trend have become ingrained as the 50-day moving average continues to show signs of rolling over.  The intermediate hurdle comes in around 4038, which presents a level of resistance to sell into in order to lighten up on allocations.  But, of course, the  major hurdle below is the June bottom at 3636, below which a range of support between 3200 and 3600 is the next logical point of reference, representing the range that the market benchmark traded in during the summer and fall of 2020 before breaking out.  A break below the June lows risks unleashing a flood of selling pressures, which could bring upon the aforementioned range of support in short order.  However, as ugly as things have become, we are quickly getting to levels where investors will want to consider becoming more aggressive with equity exposure given that the risk-reward has become incrementally better the cheaper that stocks have become, but as has been reiterated in our commentary, waiting for that intermediate turn remains the prudent course of action.
