Focus Chart of the Day: S&P 500

The S&P 500 needs to be watched closely in coming sessions. Last week’s low near 1900 came a week before option expiration. It is a “coincidence” that just seems to keep happening. This occurrence probably favors general equity strength for at least a few more days, but we maintain the market is not quite out of the woods just yet. The strong bounce over the past few days has many convinced that the “buy the dip” mentality prevails. However, the high in the indices last month came during an important cycle turn window (See "Time to Be Skeptical of Equity Market Strength" from July 14th) that argues equities are susceptible to a drawdown period lasting a few months. The real test for us will come when the index reaches the area between 1954 and 1970. This is just the 61.8% and 78.6% retracements of the July/August decline. If something has indeed changed with respect to the uptrend in stocks and its behaviour then we would expect to see it materialize around there. If the index can just do what it has done in the past and blow right through it we will know there is a good chance that the party is likely to rage on.
