State of the Market Address:
- The Dow remains well above 21,000.
- Shiller's Adjusted S&P P/E ratio is now at 29.66. Arguably the highest level in history (if we adjust for 2000 distortions) and now above 1929 top of 29.55.
- Weekly RSI at 73.08 - overbought. Daily RSI is at 60.78 - neutral.
- Prior years corrections terminated at around 200 day moving average. Located at around 17,700 today (on weekly).
- Weekly Stochastics at 88.25 - overbought. Daily at 50-neutral.
- NYSE McClellan Oscillator is at 0. Neutral.
- Volatility measures VIX/VXX are once again sitting at or near their historic lows. Commercial VIX long interest has declined. Now at 70K contracts net long Vs 90K contracts last week.
- Last week's CTO Reports suggest that commercials (smart money) are shifting their positioning to net short. Short interest has decreased slightly during the week. For now, the Dow is 6X, the S&P is at 3X, Russell 2000 is at 2X and the Nasdaq is at 6X short. That is a substantial short position against the market.
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.
