Instead of muddling through, S&P 500 moved down on slightly rising daily volume. It sure looks like the relative lull is in its latter innings, with the bears coming back. The only thing unclear is whether the bulls can respond later this week. The prior one, they barely hanged on, and as the credit markets declined yesterday on a much greater volume differential compared to the calmer days, I think the stock market bulls stand a rather poor chance this week – the volume is rising, and would probably surpass prior week‘s one. Anyway, bonds are doing the tightening for the Fed, and neither tech nor value like that. Moreover, cryptos confirm the downturn in sentiment.
Miners are saying gold and silver aren‘t yet out of the short-term woods – the base building continues, and yields are exerting pressure. Not even the rush to the dollar though could take both metals below the Feb 24 levels, which is quite an achievement. Real assets and currencies these trades are based in, are bound to hold up well – crude oil is solidly back above $100, and the upswing in spite of oil stocks weakness yesterday, hasn‘t ended. Copper keeps moving higher in fits and starts, base metals and agrifoods are merely consolidating before another upleg. In short, the runs go on.
There won’t be a regular analysis featuring charts or Twitter activities for most of this week either, but I’m keeping a close eye on the markets and will issue a sound commentary whenever required by the markets on my watch.
