Market CommentsYesterday extended the rally as the market traded into the 1618.45 level I discussed yesterday. From here, the market traded largely between the R2 and R3 levels of the day before closing on the R2 level of 1613.20. The high on Thursday was 1620.07. There is a 60 percent probability that that was the high of this sequence. However, if a new high is rendered today it should not exceed the 1624.65 level. The pattern suggests that a 3 session decline will unfold if the market remains below the 1624.65 level today. In this event, it would indicate a retracement toward the 1598/1588 levels. The configuration will remain in a sidewise pattern between the 1560/1624 levels for at least 10 more sessions. Today is a weekly and monthly close. Should the close today be above the 1598.25 level then it will set a bullish tone for early next week. A close below 1579.70 will be negative. For the month, a close above the 1624.64 level will be necessary for a bullish tone for the month of July and a close below the 1598 level will be negative. A close between these levels will be neutral. The markets should open flat to higher indicating a lower close if the market remains below the 1620.70 level today.

Market CommentsYesterday’s action saw a continuation of the recovery rally that began three sessions ago. As I mentioned on Tuesday, the expectation was for a rally back toward the 1603/1606 level which represents a 50 percent retracement of the decline that began last Wednesday from 1654 to the low of 1560.33 reached on Monday. These levels have been satisfied but there still is a 40 percent probability for a continuation toward the 1618.45 level before this sequence will be complete. Should a lower close be rendered today, then this will suggest that a 3 to 5 session decline toward the 1583/1577 levels will unfold. There is a 40 percent probability for the market to retest the 1560 lows of Monday. The configuration suggests there will most likely be a minor decline toward the 1583/1577 levels then a rebound to test the highs of this sequence before making a larger directional move. The extreme allowed in this pattern is the 1638.40 level to keep the consolidation pattern intact. Should this level not be penetrated, then the intermediate pattern suggests that the market is likely to move toward the lower targets of 1530/1509 over the next 8 to 12 weeks. The markets should open higher. Expect a lower close to be rendered if the market remains below 1613.20 level today.

Market CommentsYesterday’s action traded higher for the entire session as expected. The configuration suggests that a further rebound is likely toward the 1599.15/1605.00 levels. Should this occur today then a top would be indicated and a 3 to 5 day decline begin. However, a close above 1605 will signal an extended rally toward the 1614/1620 levels. There currently is only a 30 percent probability for that to occur. The pattern suggests that it will be difficult to get back above the 1600 level, indicating a high probability of a downward reversal in the next two sessions. If the market renders a new high above the 1594 level today and then reverses to close lower, then this will confirm a decline to retest the 1560 lows made three sessions ago. The critical level today on the downside is the 1576.95 level. A penetration will signal much lower prices. The markets should open lower. Expect a higher close to be rendered if the market remains below the 1605.00 level today.

Market CommentsYesterday’s action continued the sharp drop in prices from last week by testing the critical pivot level of 1559.10 with an intraday low of 1660.33. The market rebounded from these levels toward the 1584 level before settling back at 1573.09. The configuration suggests that if 1559.10 holds today then a minor rally back toward the 1588/1596 levels will develop. There is currently only a 40 percent probability for the market to get above the 1603.20 level in the next 3 to 5 sessions. Should the 1559.10 level be penetrated then a decline toward the 1550.15 level will be signaled. The expectations are for a minor trading range to setup between the 1559.10/1606.30 levels. Once this is completed then a decline toward the 1509/1480 level will unfold. The pattern will take a minimum of at least 2 to 3 weeks to form. The markets should open flat to lower. Expect a higher close to be rendered if the market remains above the 1559.10 level today.

Market OverviewYTD Performance S&P 500 Pacing
The Tipping Point!Last week’s action continued under pressure as the S&P shed 2.1 percent for the week. I have been discussing for the past several weeks that the market has been locked in a trading range. However, in the last week’s Podcast and in Thursday’s commentary, I warned about the risk if the market were to penetrate the 1598 lows of three weeks ago. This occurred and we traded sharply lower under heavy volume, pushing the market to close below the 1598 level. This has triggered a massive exodus by the VPM Database. Those of you that have been around for several years understand the magnitude of VPM issuing 5956 sell signals. I have written about how the database needed to remain above the 62% bullish level. Last week was at 61.7% just below the critical level. With the exits for today it will be at 45.67%. A collapse in the database holding at this level suggests that this is major turning point. Typically, this is how an end of a major move occurs. While there had been continued expectations of higher prices when the S&P 500 hit the 1650+ levels objective discussed in the 2013 market outlook that we released earlier this year, this satisfied these objectives. The action after the market spiked in May has been extremely volatile, suggesting a major consolidation was unfolding. With last week’s action and close below the 1598 level, we have now instantly entered into a new phase of the markets. Over the past 4 weeks the VPM models have been scaling back risk. In this span of time, VPM has issued 11,207 exits.
S&P 500 for the week of 06/17/2013
Looking back on last week’s action:
MondayThe market opened higher and traded with a firm tone with all market participants focused on the Fed meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday. Rumors were flowing all over the street that the Fed was not going to modify the bond purchase program. As a result, the market moved higher and remained higher in a fearless mode as the major averages ended the session with solid gains with the S&P 500 up 0.8%. The highlight of the session was Netflix as they made an announcement of a deal with DreamWorks, pushing the stock up 7.1%.
TuesdayMore of the same as the markets opened higher and maintained a steady climb right into the close, pushing the S&P 500 up 0.8 percent for the second session. Everyone was expecting Chairman Bernanke to have mostly dovish words for the markets on Wednesday after the release of the outcome of the two day meeting. Once again another fearless trading session as the market was positioned to move higher into the meeting results on Wednesday.
WednesdayThe market opened unchanged and was locked in a range prior to the FOMC statement and the press conference by Bernanke. However, things began to change once the FOMC statement was released at 2pm. While the statement was mostly as expected, as always there were just a few items the market participants decided were import. The initial response was negative, pushing yields higher and stocks lower. A significant bid was in the US dollar. Most of the comments suggested that conditions have continued to improve which triggered traders to sell stocks and bonds. The Press conference by Bernanke was embarrassing as questions in the Q & A session began. The more he talked, the lower the market went. The market participants didn’t believe a word and the market collapsed and yields moved toward the 2.33 level by the end of the session.
ThursdayThings just got worse as global shares sold off overnight triggering a sharply lower open and the selling continued through the session. Yields continued to rise as they pushed toward the 2.4+ levels on the treasury rates. This triggered heavy selling in Consumer Staples, Utilities, Gold and silver. The metals had a flash back to the collapse back in mid-April with gold hitting 1280 and silver at 19.59 per ounce. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 lost 2.5 percent on the session.
FridayThe market opened higher but was unable to get back above the 1600 level. It then faded back to render new lows for this move to the 1584 levels. The tech sector was under heavy pressure with Oracle down 9.3 percent. The market rebounded mid-session as they held onto moderate gains at the end of the session to close up by 0.3%. The big story was in the bonds as yields on the 10-year reached 2.51 percent. You have to go back to August of 2011 to find yields at this level. Expect the volatility to continue this week. After the sharp drop, we should see a moderate rebound. Market sentiment will likely continue to deteriorate.
