The each day worth swings within the S&P 500 final week have been fairly typical of 2022. On Monday and Wednesday, it was down 0.89% and 0.83% however had a achieve of 0.87% on Tuesday. The Friday achieve of 0.48% greater than offset Thursday’s 0.31% decline. For the yr there have been 54 days when it was up over 1% and 56 when it was down 1%.
The one yr since 2013 that comes shut was 2020 with 65 1% gainers and 45 1% losers. It was evident early within the yr that market volatility had picked up. On the time I assumed it might proceed however not final all yr.
In final week’s scoreboard, there have been largely minus indicators, led as soon as once more by the Nasdaq 100 which was down 1.2%. A brand new addition to the desk is the 200 day easy shifting common (far proper column) which I assumed you’ll discover helpful.
Solely two markets closed the week above their 200 day SMA, the Dow Jones Industrial Common and the Dow Jones Transportation Common which I’ve highlighted by placing their costs in inexperienced. Market individuals typically watch these ranges. The S&P 500 was down simply 0.7% final week and is slightly below its 200 day SMA at 4067.34.
The Dow Jones Transportation Common was underneath essentially the most strain down 2.1% adopted by a 1.7% drop within the iShares Russell 2000. The Dow Jones Utility Common gained 1.1%. The SPDR Gold Shares (GLD
For the week the market internals have been damaging with 1484 points advancing and 1928 declining. Each day they flip-flopped like the worth motion. The general damaging numbers reversed many of the positives from the prior week. Of the weekly A/D strains solely the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Common at the moment are optimistic.
Within the week forward that is one knowledge collection that I shall be watching as one other week of damaging numbers will flip the intermediate outlook extra damaging. This knowledge shall be particularly necessary for the Nasdaq 100 which fashioned a doji final week with a low of $280.72. An in depth on “Black Friday” beneath this stage will set off a weekly doji promote sign. A drop beneath the assist at $262.04, line b, would assist the bearish case particularly for the reason that 20 week EMA has not but been overcome on a closing foundation.
The weekly Nasdaq 100 Advance/Decline line closed again beneath its nonetheless declining WMA this week. The truth that it has simply reached the resistance at line c, isn’t an encouraging signal. A drop beneath the November 4th low can be much more damaging as it might undertaking a transfer to new correction lows.
The Spyder Belief (SPY
The S&P 500 Advance/Decline which has been the strongest for the reason that October low remains to be nicely above its flat WMA. A decline beneath the latest low (see arrow) can be an indication of weak point. Every week of robust A/D numbers is required to show it extra optimistic.
After the two and 10 Yr T-Notes yields did top out I used to be on the lookout for yields to rebound however they didn’t till the top of the week. The two-Yr yield had a low of 4.322% however then closed the week at 4.531%. That was again above the decrease boundary of the buying and selling channel, line b. That implies we might see a bounce again to the 4.650% space if not increased this week. The MACDs are clearly damaging and present no indicators but of bottoming.
The motion within the gold futures over the previous three weeks means that they might be within the strategy of bottoming. The futures reached the 38.2% resistance at $1792.50 final week after a low of $1618.30 simply three weeks in the past. If the decrease shut final week is a part of the bottoming course of the correction shouldn’t final too lengthy and create a possibility.
This rally was extra spectacular than the summer time rally because the on-balance-volume (OBV) has moved nicely above its WMA. The amount was stronger early within the rally. Additionally, the Herrick Payoff Index, which seems on the worth, quantity and open curiosity has turned optimistic by shifting nicely above the zero line and its WMA.
I shall be watching the motion in GLD in addition to the VanEck Gold Miners ETF (GDX
The sentiment within the monetary press final week appears to be extra optimistic as many enable for a rally again to say 4150 if not 4300 within the S&P 500. That was my view final month however I’m extra cautious because the A/D strains haven’t been robust sufficient for me to be assured in these targets proper now.
After all it’s attainable that we are going to simply see extra weak point within the tech progress ETFs and shares as there are a selection of sectors that look rather more optimistic than SPY and have optimistic relative efficiency.
So for the week forward watch the advance/decline numbers early within the week. The formation of weekly dojis in SPY, QQQ
