Vermilion Compass: Weekly Equity Strategy

S&P 500 Coiled Spring Our view remains bullish as long as the S&P 500 is above the 2940-2980 support zone and we suggest buying any dips. Additionally, 3076 is a short-term support level to watch on the S&P 500; if 3076 holds it would be further confirmation that the bulls are still in charge. · What Would Alter Our Bullish Outlook? Key support levels we are watching include the 2940-2980 zone on the S&P 500, 9500 on the Nasdaq 100 (or $231.50 on the QQQ), and $133 on the Russell 2000 (IWM). A break below these support levels would be a bearish trend change, which would signal additi...

Vermilion Compass: Weekly Equity Strategy

Market remains in purgatory Purgatory is a reference we have used to describe the state of the market numerous times throughout 2019, and we believe this remains the case. Technical signals continue to suggest that while there are little-to-no signs for us to expect impending doom (economic data notwithstanding), there is also little to suggest an imminent broad market rally. Until these signals begin leading us one way or the other, our neutral outlook remains appropriate. • Small-caps, Transports, Banks. Small-caps underperforming large-caps remains on our list of concerns as it has for mo...

Markets on the mend, still not at full health Recent market developments are encouraging and have improved the overall health of the market, which has also incrementally improved our outlook. At the same time, there is still more to be desired before we can have confidence in the prospect of a broad market rally. • Emerging Markets. An important signal of substantially improving risk appetites, emerging markets (EEM) are staging a bullish RS reversal relative to both the S&P 500 and MSCI ACWI (ACWI), and price is arguably bullishly inflecting as well. China (FXI) is helping lead the turnarou...
