Stock Market Update and US Stocks Watchlist – 26 June 2022

The full post is available to view by premium members only. For immediate access:

The stock market saw strong moves on Friday with the 5th attempt at a Follow Through Day (FTD) forming of this Stage 4 decline, which coincided with other short-term signals with the percentage of stocks above their 20 day EMAs moving strongly out of the lower zone in all the major markets, which changes those to positive status (see the indicator at the bottom of the S&P 500 chart attached). Also, the short-term Bullish Percent Index 1hr chart in the Nasdaq Composite (see lower in the article) moved back to positive status on Wednesday and followed through into the end of the week with the NYSE also joining it. 

So although the FTD volume is suspect due to the Russell rebalancing, and is making many question it. There are other market breadth measures showing the short-term status changes at the same time. Hence, as with previous FTDs, it's a time to test the market on the long side using progressive exposure in areas showing strength. 

It may not work once more, as the market remains in Stage 4 currently, and hence it's a short-term counter-trend rally attempt. But, at some point, a counter-trend rally will develop into Stage 1, and we'll start to see more setups develop and breakouts beginning to work again. So we just have to take it a step at a time and manage risk accordingly.

Market Breadth: NYSE & Nasdaq Bullish Percent Index

Short Term – Follow Through

In Wednesday's post, I talked about a potential status change to a tentative positive status for the Nasdaq Composite Bullish Percent Index (BPI) short-term chart, which saw follow-through on Thursday and Friday and was also joined by the NYSE BPI as it moved through its 30 bar MA which then turned up. So, both the Nasdaq and NYSE are now on short-term positive environment status for this indicator.

Long Term – status change to Bull Alert

The Bullish Percent Index Point & Figure charts are used for the long-term statuses, and both the NYSE and Nasdaq Composite charts saw a reversal on Friday to a column of X's in the lower zone, which changes the P&F status of both to Bull Alert status.

Stock Market Update and US Stocks Watchlist – 16 August 2022

With the S&P 500 testing the 200 day MA today and Dow Industrials closing above it, the IBD Industry Group Bullish Percent Index has moved above the 60% level, which is the level that I use to determine the Stage 2 zone. 60%+ is considered in the Stage 2 zone. So although the majority of the major market indexes are only in Stage 1, the Industry Group Bullish Percent breadth data is moving into a tentative Stage 2 zone position...

US Stocks Watchlist – 14 August 2022

Semiconductors was the dominant theme in the weekend scans, with multiple stocks in the group recovering strongly from weakness caused by the NVDA pre-earnings release early in the week. I did an in-focus on the Semiconductors group in the US Stocks Industry Groups Relative Strength Rankings post on Friday evening, including some market breadth data on the group. So take a look at that if you haven't already.
