The Markets

Stocks sold off following a better than expected read of payroll growth for April, which market participants viewed as reason for the Fed to continue to be aggressive in normalizing monetary policy.  The S&P 500 Index fell by 0.57%, reaching back towards the lows of the year and continuing to make progress below the neckline to the massive head-and-shoulders topping pattern.  Downside risks suggested of the setup are all the way down to 3780, which, if achieved, would represent an approximately 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of the entire pandemic rally in stocks.  Currently, the benchmark has found itself in a short-term range between 4070 and 4300, which will warrant further monitoring in the days ahead given that the lower limit has been tested twice this week and both instances saw buyers step in.  A possible path for the benchmark through the month of May is a short-term consolidation in this range, below the neckline to the topping setup, before resolving lower.  Momentum indicators, along with major moving averages, continue to point lower, characteristic of a bearish trend over multiple timeframes.  For now, as long as levels of resistance continue to outweigh levels of support, there is very little incentive to be aggressive in this market.  We could still realize some ugly days in the market in order to provide the “flush” that would warrant jumping head first into risk again within portfolios.
