World Markets Weekend Update: The Global Rally Accelerates

Courtesy of Doug Short’s Advisor Perspectives.

Seven of the eight indexes on our world watch list posted gains over the past week, up from five the week before, and the average of the eight was an impressive 2.60%. India’s SENSEX was the outstanding out performer with a 5.34% surge, and three indexes, France’s CAC 40, the Hong Kong’s Hang Seng and Germany’s DAXK closed the week with gains in the mid-three percents. China’s Shanghai was the sole loser with its fractional 0.16% decline. Japan’s Nikkei had the second worse performance with a modest gain of 0.59%. Incidentally, the Nikkei about 4% below its late January close when the Bank of Japan adopted its negative interest rate policy.

A Closer Look at the Last Four Weeks

The tables below provide a concise overview of performance comparisons over the past four weeks for these eight major indexes. We’ve also included the average for each week so that we can evaluate the performance of a specific index relative to the overall mean and better understand weekly volatility. The colors for each index name help us visualize the comparative performance over time.

Four Weeks

A Closer Look at the Year-to-Date Performance

Here is an overlay of the eight illustrating their comparative performance so far in 2016.

Here is a table of the 2016 performance, sorted from high to low, along with the interim highs for the eight indexes. Three indexes are now in the green year-to-date, the S&P 500 now joined by the SENSEX and FTSE. China’s Shanghai Composite continues to merit the dubious distinction of biggest loser last week, down over 20 percent.

The Global Bear Market Perspective

The column chart is sorted by the least to worst declines from previous peaks as of the week’s end. Seven of our eight watch list indexes had dropped into bear territory (a 20% decline), the S&P 500 being the sole exception. As of the latest close, three of the eight have remain in the bear zone, unchanged from the previous week.

A Longer Perspective

The chart below illustrates the comparative performance of World Markets since March 9, 2009. The start date is arbitrary: The S&P 500, CAC 40 and BSE SENSEX hit their lows on March 9th, the Nikkei 225 on March 10th, the DAX on March 6th, the FTSE on March 3rd, the Shanghai Composite on November 4,…

Stock market leaders at exhaustion

Courtesy of Read the Ticker.

stock-market-leaders-at-exhaustionMany stock market leading sectors are suffering exhaustion, and have been held up for distribution.

Previous Post: A leading SPDR sector looks to roll over

The SPDR Health sector is showing exhaustion at the end of the trend, the ‘Effect’ as exhausted itself. It has been a dream run, many large players have banked health profits.

The question now is the current consolidation one of distribution or accumulation? Can we expect another run up from the building ‘Cause’?

So far prices have been held up to sell into, as most of the volume is net selling. Yes prices are still high after this distribution (absorption), and it may mean we shall see another run to all time highs on the XLV for more selling into the up swing. To determine if the next swing up is strength and a break out for this sector will require careful judgment as to the quality of the strength behind the move. Remember the composite man can move the market 10% to 15% just to trick you, and remove you from you hard earned cash.

POINT: Not all moves to higher highs should attract new investment, some can call these moves a bull market trap, or fake break out. It is election year folks and the stock market is being used (incorrectly) as a measure of how healthy the economy is for the common man. Obama and Biden have already met with Yellen and placed there order in for ‘all is well’, raise rates to prove economy and markets are ‘all ok’. (Consider this).

Wyckoff PnF analysis shows this sector leader and the wider market is exhausted.

Why?

Short Answer: The smart money want to distribute their stock float to the dumb money, and they are not done yet, maybe another all time high on the SP500 to sucker them all in, just one more time.

Plus Obama and Biden have already ordered Yellen to allow no crashes until after the election.

Market Recap May 27, 2016

Courtesy of Blain.

Another solid day for the bulls as we had yet another pop at the open and then another round of buying into the close.  The S&P 500 gained 0.43% and the NASDAQ 0.65%.  This despite some mildly (not overly) hawkish comments from Janet Yellen.  “It’s appropriate for the Fed to gradually and cautiously increase our overnight interest rate over time,” Yellen said at a high-profile visit to Harvard University on Friday. That means a move could be appropriate in coming months, she said.

U.S. first-quarter economic growth was revised up to 0.8% from a previous reading of 0.5%, based on a fresh estimate that shows somewhat stronger home construction and restocking of warehouse shelves.

“I think if you look at the equity market and you look at Treasurys I think investors have upgraded their view of the economy a little bit. … You haven’t really seen that get translated into the Fed raising rates,” said John Bredemus, vice president at Allianz Investment Management. He noted while expectations for a rate rise have risen, the Fed is likely “not going to do much.”

“Yellen basically cemented what other Fed speakers had been saying over the past week and I am a little surprised how well the market has absorbed the news,” said Michael Antonelli, equity sales trader at Robert W. Baird & Co.

It is now a fair time to get out of the bunkers – the S&P 500 and Russell 2000 cleared resistance earlier this week, and Friday the NASDAQ joined the party.

Best Stock Market Indicator Update

Courtesy of Doug Short’s Advisor Perspectives.

We continue to receive requests for updates to the “Best Stock Market Indicator”, which used to be a regular guest post from John Carlucci. Here is an update of the “Carlucci” indicator along with a summary of John’s explanation on how he uses it.


As John described it: “The $OEXA200R (the percentage of S&P 100 stocks above their 200 DMA) is a technical indicator available on StockCharts.com used to find the “sweet spot” time period in the market when you have the best chance of making money.”

Latest Indicator Position

According to this system, the market is now tradable and a signal to to enter and continue long trading. The OEXA200R is at 79%, and all three secondary indicators are positive:

  • RSI is POSITIVE (above 50)
  • Slow STO is POSITIVE (black line above red line)
  • MACD is POSITIVE (black line above red line)

Carlucci Indicator

Background on the “Carlucci” Indicator

The OEXA200R is a metric used to assess the state of the market in order to make profitable trading decisions. That is, whether we are in a bull market, a bear market or transitioning from one to the other, as well as market volatility and risk within each of those situations. Historically, it has also given traders a clear early warning signal of impending serious market downturns and later safe re-entry points. While not intended as a day trading tool per se, it can certainly be used as background information by highly speculative traders. Simply put, the OEXA200R gives traders the ability to identify the most opportune conditions within which to execute their various long, short or hold strategies.

Definition of Terms:

Tradable” refers to the point at which it is most advantageous to enter and continue long trading.

Un-tradable” refers to the point at which it is advisable to exit all long positions that have not already automatically closed with a trailing stop loss. Please be aware that the OEXA exit points are not always timed at the exact top of any run up, that is impossible to predict. However, a trailing stop will follow the price to the highest point and close out as it falls from there, meaning most positions should have closed before the OEXA exit signal appears and thus should close at a point higher than at the exit…

Moving Averages: Month-End Preview

Courtesy of Doug Short’s Advisor Perspectives.

Here is an advance preview of the monthly moving averages we track after the close of the last business day of the month. At this point, before the close on the last day of the month, all three S&P 500 strategies are signaling “invested” — unchanged from last month’s triple “invested” signal. All five Ivy Portfolio ETFs — Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (VTI),Vanguard FTSE All-World (VEU), iShares’ Barclays 7-10 Year Treasury (IEF), PowerShares DB (DBC) and Vanguard REIT Index ETF (VNQ), — are signaling “invested”, unchanged from last month’s triple invested signal.

Month-End Preview

If a position is less than 2% from a signal, it is highlighted in yellow.

Note: Our inclusion of the S&P 500 index updates is intended to illustrate a popular moving moving-average timing strategy. The index signals also give a general sense of how US equities are behaving. However, for followers of a moving average strategy, the general practice is to make buy/sell decisions on the signals for each specific investment, not based on a broad index. Even if you’re investing in a fund that tracks the S&P 500 (e.g., Vanguard’s VFINX or the SPY ETF) the moving average signals for the funds will occasionally differ from the underlying index because of dividend reinvestment, which is not factored into the index closes.

The Ivy Portfolio

The second of the three adjacent tables previews the 10-month SMA timing signals for the five asset classes highlighted in The Ivy Portfolio.

We’ve also included (third table) the 12-month SMA timing signals for the Ivy ETFs in response to the many requests to include this slightly longer timeframe.


After the end-of-month market close, we’ll update the monthly moving average feature with charts to illustrate.

The bottom line is that these moving-average signals have a good track record for long-term gains while avoiding major losses. They’re not fool-proof, but they essentially dodged the 2007-2009 bear and have captured significant gains since the initial buy signals after the March 2009 low.





S&P 500 Snapshot: Third Largest Weekly Gain of 2016

Courtesy of Doug Short’s Advisor Perspectives.

The S&P 500 opened at its intraday low and closed with a modest 0.43% gain at its intraday high. However, the week-over-week gain of 2.28% is the third largest weekly gain of the year so far, bested only by the 2.84% jump the week ending on February 19th and the 2.67% advance the week ending March 4th. This morning’s 0.8% Second Estimate of Q1 GDP was a yawner, but the 5.7 point surge in the May final Michigan Consumer Sentiment was the largest increase since December 2013. The market showed no anxiety from Fed Chair Yellen’s remark that a near-term rate hike would probably be appropriate.

The yield on the 10-year note closed at 1.85%, up two basis points from the previous close.

Here is a snapshot of past five sessions in the S&P 500.

Visualizing GDP: An Inside Look at the Q1 Second Estimate

Courtesy of Doug Short’s Advisor Perspectives.

Note: The charts in this commentary have been updated to include the Q1 2016 Second Estimate.


The chart below is a way to visualize real GDP change since 2007. It uses a stacked column chart to segment the four major components of GDP with a dashed line overlay to show the sum of the four, which is real GDP itself. Here is the latest overview from the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

The increase in real GDP in the first quarter reflected positive contributions from personal consumption expenditures (PCE), residential fixed investment, and state and local government spending that were partly offset by negative contributions from nonresidential fixed investment, private inventory investment, exports, and federal government spending. Imports, which are a subtraction in the calculation of GDP, increased.

Let’s take a closer look at the contributions of GDP of the four major subcomponents. The data source for this chart is the Excel file accompanying the BEA’s latest GDP news release (see the links in the right column). Specifically, it uses Table 2: Contributions to Percent Change in Real Gross Domestic Product.

GDP Components

Note: The conventional practice is to round GDP to one decimal place, the latest at 0.8. The 0.84 GDP in the chart above is the real GDP calculated to two decimal places.

Over the time frame of this chart, the Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) component has shown the most consistent correlation with real GDP itself. When PCE has been positive, GDP has usually been positive, and vice versa. In the latest GDP data, the contribution of PCE came at 1.29 of the 0.84 real GDP. The contribution from PCE has been declining since Q2 of last year.

The contribution from Gross Private Domestic Investment dropped significantly from the previous quarter.

Net Exports, which is largely impacted by fluctuations in Dollar strength, is still negative and below the Q4 2015 value.

Here is a look at the contribution changes between over the past four quarters. The difference between the two rightmost columns was addressed in the BEA’s GDP summary quoted above.

Contributions Table

The chart includes an exponential regression through the data using the Excel GROWTH function to give us a sense of the historical trend. The regression illustrates the fact that the trend since the Great Recession has a visibly lower slope than long-term trend. In fact, the current GDP per-capita is 10.2% below the pre-recession trend.

GDP per Capita Linear

The real per-capita series gives us a better understanding of the depth and duration of GDP contractions. As we can see, since our 1960 starting point, the recession that began in December 2007 is associated with a deeper trough than previous contractions, which perhaps justifies its nickname as the Great Recession.

Quarterly GDP Compounded Annual Rate of Change

The standard measure of GDP in the US is expressed as the compounded annual rate of change from one quarter to the next. The current real GDP is 0.8 percent. But with a per-capita adjustment, the data series is lower at 0.16 percent. The 10-year moving average illustrates that US economic growth has slowed dramatically since the last recession.

Quarterly GDP per Capita

How do the two compare, GDP and GDP per capita? Here is an overlay of the two in the 21st century.

ECRI Weekly Leading Index: WLI Up 1.0, YoY at 1.29%

Courtesy of Doug Short’s Advisor Perspectives.

Today’s release of the publicly available data from ECRI (Economic Cycle Research Institute) puts its Weekly Leading Index (WLI) at 136.1, up 1.0 from the previous week. Year-over-year the indicator is now at 1.29%, up from 1.14% the previous week and the ninth week in positive territory. The company’s Weekly Leading Index annualized growth indicator (WLIg) is at 6.1, an increase from the previous week.

“Wage Erosion Resumes”

ECRI’s latest feature article raises concerns about a Fed rate hike and its affect on real wages. According to the article, real average weekly earnings have gone from just under 3% in early 2015 to 1.5% today. ECRI notes that inflation “eats away at wages” and that we are currently in an inflation upturn, which will deter consumer spending. Read the article here.

The ECRI Indicator Year-over-Year

Below is a chart of ECRI’s smoothed year-over-year percent change since 2000 of their weekly leading index. The latest level is above where it was at the start of the last recession.

WLI since 2000

RecessionAlert has launched an alternative to ECRI’s WLIg, the Weekly Leading Economic Indicator (WLEI), which uses 50 different time series from various categories, including the Corporate Bond Composite, Treasury Bond Composite, Stock Market Composite, Labor Market Composite, and Credit Market Composite. An interesting point to notice — back in 2011, ECRI made an erroneous recession call, while the WLEI did not trigger such a premature call. However, both indicators are now generally in agreement and moving in the same direction.

Appendix: A Closer Look at the ECRI Index

The first chart below shows the history of the Weekly Leading Index and highlights its current level.

WLI Complete Series

For a better understanding of the relationship of the WLI level to recessions, the next chart shows the data series in terms of the percent off the previous peak. In other words, a new weekly high registers at 100%, with subsequent declines plotted accordingly.

WLI Percent off Peak

As the chart above illustrates, only once has a recession ended without the index level achieving a new high — the two recessions, commonly referred to as a “double-dip,” in the early 1980s. Our current level is still off the…

Michigan Consumer Sentiment: May Final Substantially Higher Than April

Courtesy of Doug Short’s Advisor Perspectives.

The University of Michigan Final Consumer Sentiment for May came in at 94.7, it’s highest reading in nearly a year and a 5.7 point increase from the 89.0 April Final reading. This is its largest increase since 2013. Investing.com had forecast 95.4.

Surveys of Consumers chief economist, Richard Curtin, makes the following comments:

Consumers were a bit less optimistic in late May than earlier in the month, but sentiment was still substantially higher than last month. Indeed, there have only been four prior months since the January 2007 peak in which the Sentiment Index was higher than in May 2016, all recorded at the start of 2015. Despite the meager GDP growth as well as a higher inflation rate, consumers became more optimistic about their financial prospects and anticipated a somewhat lower inflation rate in the years ahead. Positive views toward vehicle and home sales also posted gains in May largely due to low interest rates. The biggest uncertainty consumers see on the horizon is not whether the Fed will hike interest rates in the next few months, but the outlook for future government economic policies under a new president. This has increased their emphasis on maintaining precautionary savings, although the savings rate is not expected to increase much beyond its current level. Although small stock gains are anticipated, household wealth is more likely to benefit from rising home prices, with gains now more frequent than in a decade. Overall, the data indicate that inflation-adjusted consumer expenditures can be expected to rise by 2.5% in 2016 and 2.7% in 2017. [More...]

See the chart below for a long-term perspective on this widely watched indicator. Recessions and real GDP are included to help us evaluate the correlation between the Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index and the broader economy.

Michigan Consumer Sentiment

To put today’s report into the larger historical context since its beginning in 1978, consumer sentiment is 10.9 percent above the average reading (arithmetic mean) and 12.2 percent above the geometric mean. The current index level is at the 77th percentile of the 461 monthly data points in this series.

The Michigan average since its inception is 85.4. During non-recessionary years the average is 87.6. The average during the five recessions is 69.3. So the latest sentiment number puts us 25.4…
