The Markets

Stocks rebounded sharply on Thursday as an alleviation of concerns pertaining to the consumer sent investors back into some of the beaten down consumer discretionary names in the market.  The S&P 500 Index gained around 2%, closing above its 20-day moving average for the first time since the start of April.  Declining trendline support, currently just below 3800, continues to provide the propping point for this upside rebound, while resistance around major moving averages at the 50 and 200-day moving averages (4280 and 4450) remaining threatening overhead.  Momentum indicators continue to curl higher after trading down to near oversold levels in recent weeks and MACD remains on a buy signal that was triggered on Wednesday.  A rebound in the market through the last week of the month is exactly what we have been anticipating, but while short-term waning selling pressures in recent weeks have been conducive to a rebound attempt, a more defined bottom may be required in order to fuel a more sustainable move higher, something that we are looking out for in the month ahead.  In the meantime, we are positioned to take advantage of the near-term rally, but we are also holding onto those long-duration bonds, which have derived a trend of outperformance versus stocks in recent weeks, indicative of buying demand.

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

  • The ongoing trend of outperformance in the bond market
  • Our forecasted May 25th Technology buy date
  • The change in Margin Debt in investor accounts
  • Weekly Jobless Claims
  • Canadian Retail Sales and the stocks of the retailers
