  • Market Views


    Technical View:  

    The S&P closed the previous week by rebounding at a vital support level for the longer term trend and last week saw follow through that broke it out of the falling wedge pattern, another higher low put in and now MACD nearing a bullish crossover. The next key zone to clear is 2,065/2,070 that will allow for a higher high to be reached at 2,100 or even as high as 2,135. The 8 day EMA is nearing a bullish crossover of the 20 day EMA putting bulls back in control short-term while the longer term trend is clearly bullish. The support levels into the week are 2,050/2,025/2,000/1,990.



    The latest AAII Sentiment Survey showed bullish sentiment down 9 points to 37.1% and bearish sentiment rose 9.3 points to 30.8%, putting both numbers back near historical averages. The NAAIM Exposure Index dropped back to 76.23 from 87.13. The most recent week of fund flows showed $5.9B of outflows from equity funds, the third consecutive week of outflows. As of Friday’s close 453 stocks made new highs compared to 137 at new lows, a strengthening of that relationship, while still just 51.5% of stocks trade above the SMA200 and 50.7% above the SMA50. CBOE Equity Put/Call closed the week elevated at 0.70 and Index Put/Call at 1.96 hit a 6 month high, so no signs of complacency. NYMO closed the week at 16.88, putting us slightly overbought. NYSE Summation put in a higher low and is starting to curl in a positive trend. NYSE Cumulative TICK remains in a buy signal above its 20 day EMA and the VIX:VXV ratio that gave a strong buy signal on 1-15 has collapsed down to normal levels.

    Estee Lauder (EL) with 1,000 February $72.50 puts bought $1.65 to $1.70, reports on 2/5 and KMB just tanked on earnings last week, and then another 1,000 bought.
