The day by day worth swings within the S&P 500 final week had been fairly typical of 2022. On Monday and Wednesday, it was down 0.89% and 0.83% however had a achieve of 0.87% on Tuesday. The Friday achieve of 0.48% greater than offset Thursday’s 0.31% decline. For the 12 months there have been 54 days when it was up over 1% and 56 when it was down 1%.
The one 12 months since 2013 that comes shut was 2020 with 65 1% gainers and 45 1% losers. It was evident early within the 12 months that market volatility had picked up. On the time I assumed it might proceed however not final all 12 months.
In final week’s scoreboard, there have been largely minus indicators, led as soon as once more by the Nasdaq 100 which was down 1.2%. A brand new addition to the desk is the 200 day easy shifting common (far proper column) which I assumed you’d discover helpful.
Solely two markets closed the week above their 200 day SMA, the Dow Jones Industrial Common and the Dow Jones Transportation Common which I’ve highlighted by placing their costs in inexperienced. Market individuals usually watch these ranges. The S&P 500 was down simply 0.7% final week and is slightly below its 200 day SMA at 4067.34.
The Dow Jones Transportation Common was beneath essentially the most strain down 2.1% adopted by a 1.7% drop within the iShares Russell 2000. The Dow Jones Utility Common gained 1.1%. The SPDR Gold Shares (GLD
For the week the market internals had been damaging with 1484 points advancing and 1928 declining. Each day they flip-flopped like the value motion. The general damaging numbers reversed a lot of the positives from the prior week. Of the weekly A/D traces solely the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Common at the moment are constructive.
Within the week forward that is one knowledge collection that I can be watching as one other week of damaging numbers will flip the intermediate outlook extra damaging. This knowledge can be particularly vital for the Nasdaq 100 which shaped a doji final week with a low of $280.72. An in depth on “Black Friday” beneath this stage will set off a weekly doji promote sign. A drop beneath the help at $262.04, line b, would help the bearish case particularly because the 20 week EMA has not but been overcome on a closing foundation.
The weekly Nasdaq 100 Advance/Decline line closed again beneath its nonetheless declining WMA this week. The truth that it has simply reached the resistance at line c, is just not an encouraging signal. A drop beneath the November 4th low could be much more damaging as it might challenge a transfer to new correction lows.

The S&P 500 Advance/Decline which has been the strongest because the October low continues to be properly above its flat WMA. A decline beneath the latest low (see arrow) could be an indication of weak spot. Per week of sturdy A/D numbers is required to show it extra constructive.
After the two and 10 12 months T-Notes yields did prime out I used to be in search of yields to rebound however they didn’t till the top of the week. The two-12 months yield had a low of 4.322% however then closed the week at 4.531%. That was again above the decrease boundary of the buying and selling channel, line b. That implies we might see a bounce again to the 4.650% space if not greater this week. The MACDs are clearly damaging and present no indicators but of bottoming.
The motion within the gold futures over the previous three weeks means that they could be within the means of bottoming. The futures reached the 38.2% resistance at $1792.50 final week after a low of $1618.30 simply three weeks in the past. If the decrease shut final week is a part of the bottoming course of the correction mustn’t final too lengthy and create a possibility.
This rally was extra spectacular than the summer season rally because the on-balance-volume (OBV) has moved properly above its WMA. The amount was stronger early within the rally. Additionally, the Herrick Payoff Index, which seems to be on the worth, quantity and open curiosity has turned constructive by shifting properly above the zero line and its WMA.
I can be watching the motion in GLD in addition to the VanEck Gold Miners ETF (GDX
The sentiment within the monetary press final week appears to be extra constructive as many permit for a rally again to say 4150 if not 4300 within the S&P 500. That was my view final month however I’m extra cautious because the A/D traces haven’t been sturdy sufficient for me to be assured in these targets proper now.
After all it’s potential that we’ll simply see extra weak spot within the tech progress ETFs and shares as there are a selection of sectors that look way more constructive than SPY and have constructive relative efficiency.
So for the week forward watch the advance/decline numbers early within the week. The formation of weekly dojis in SPY, QQQ
