The Markets

Stocks took another leg lower on Monday as the “sell everything” market turned its sights on some of this year’s winners, such as those in the energy sector.  The S&P 500 Index closed with a loss of 3.20%, continuing to make progress below the neckline to its massive head-and-shoulders topping pattern.  The 3780 target that the topping setup projects would encompass a fairly standard 38.2% retracement of the entire pandemic rally realized between March of 2020 and the fall of last year.  A significant low in the market between present levels and the theoretical projection of the topping setup would be a healthy reset of the froth that had built up in the market over the past couple of years and set the stage for the strength that is expected of stocks through the back half of 2022.  Momentum indicators are still showing characteristics of a bearish trend, unworthy to take a stab at the new 52-week lows in prices, yet, but our projected timeframes of when to ramp up risk are quickly approaching and just about everything that is being trashed today will likely be a screaming buy ahead.  For now, sitting with a large allocation to cash and bonds is very comforting on days like Monday.

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

  • Risk aversion taking a toll on cyclical assets
  • Bonds becoming a defensive allocation again
  • Notable ratings changes in this week’s chart books
  • The breakdown on the chart of the S&P 400 Mid-cap Index
  • Buying exhaustion in energy stocks
