Vermilion Compass: Weekly Equity Strategy

ullish Tape Despite Inconsistencies

Despite the bulls still being in control, we have several ongoing concerns and we cannot rule out the potential for a pullback. Below we highlight developments that are inconsistent with a major bottom in equities that suggests the broad equity market is not yet out of the woods.

· S&P 500 Short-Term Levels. We continue to respect the bullish tape, however the S&P 500 remains in the 2855-2900 resistance zone while forming a bearish rising wedge pattern. This pattern results in a breakdown roughly 70% of the time. Still, support at 2760 would need to be violated in order to confirm a pattern breakdown. If there is a breakdown below 2760, downside targets include 2650 followed by 2470... see chart below.

· WTI Crude Oil, 10-Year Treasury. We have suggested for several weeks that price action in WTI crude oil (the spot price, not the May contract) is inconsistent with a durable bottom in the S&P 500. In recent major bottoms (2002-2003, 2009, 2011, and 2016), WTI made bullish inflections either prior to or coincident with a bottom in the S&P 500. This clearly has not happened this time around and the absence of bullish inflections in WTI suggests the broad equity market is not out of the woods. The 10-year Treasury yield tells a similar story as it remains pinned down near YTD lows... see page 3.

· Dow Transports, Small-Caps. The Dow Jones Transportation Average and the Russell 2000 small-cap index are below significant resistance from their respective December 2018 lows (support turned resistance). As long as prices remain below these levels we want to keep our expectations in check. If the broad market was bottoming we would expect these two cyclical areas to break above resistance... see page 4.

· Ratios: Small vs. Large-Caps, Discretionary vs. Staples. The small- vs. large-cap ratio is testing 17-year lows and has made a lower high. The equal-weighted Discretionary vs. Staples ratio (RCD vs. RHS) is near its 2009 lows and is consolidating sideways. This is not what we would expect a major bottom in equities to look like... see page 4.

· Improvements In High Yield Spreads & S&P 500 Breadth. High yield spreads are below 800-850 bps and breadth has improved to the point that we may have avoided the worst-case scenario of an S&P 500 undercut to new lows. Still, we are watching these indicators for signs of deterioration which could coincide with a pullback in the S&P 500... see page 5.
