Market Recap

• All of the Indexes closed small percentages over the course of the week due to inflation fears (after CPI report on Wed), but we had a nice rally day on Friday to offset some of those losses.
• We are now staying below the all-time highs we set about a week ago, and that high will be resistance in the future. I think we will consolidate around this level to provide some support and filling after the big run-up. That could mean a choppy price action. Remember that November and December are traditionally good months for markets in general.
• Support at $SPX is likely 4525/4550 which is still 100 points below current levels.

The 10-year Treasury yield and the US dollar made some big upward moves through the week’s end.


The VIX or the fear indicator was also noticeably higher in the middle of the week (almost touched 21 on wed 11/17), but then fell again at the rally on Friday. The indicators based on VIX and its derivatives remain generally bullish for stocks so far.  Additionally, $ VIX remains trending down as the 20-day moving average of $ VIX is still below the 200-day MA.


Put-Call Ratios

The put-call ratios for pure stocks remain solid on buy signals as they continue to fall rapidly. As long as they go down, that’s bullish for stocks. The ratios are approaching the lower regions of their charts. That is, they are “overbought”. But they won’t produce confirmed sell signals until they roll over and start an uptrend.
