- State of the Market Address:
- The Dow is back above 24,000
- Shiller's Adjusted S&P P/E ratio is now at 32.14 Off highs, but still arguably at the highest level in history (if we adjust for 2000 distortions) and still above 1929 top of 29.55.
- Weekly RSI at 53 - neutral. Daily RSI is at 42 - neutral.
- Prior years corrections terminated at around 200 day moving average. Located at around 18,800 today (on weekly).
- Weekly Stochastics at 56 - neutral. Daily at 22 - oversold
- NYSE McClellan Oscillator is at -74. Oversold.
- Volatility measures VIX/VXX positioning reversed dramatically right before the "crash". Commercial VIX long interest went from being 22K contracts net long to being 30K contracts net short.
- Last week's CTO Reports suggest that commercials (smart money) have, more or less, maintained their positioning. For now, the Dow is 3X, the S&P is at 4X net short, Russell 2000 is now at 2.5X net short and the Nasdaq is net neutral.
In summary: For the time being and long-term, the market remains in a clear bull trend. Yet, a number of longer-term indicators suggest the market might experience a substantial correction ahead. Plus, the "smart money" is positioning for some sort of a sell-off.
