The Market Looking More and More Like the Summer of 2007

Larry Connors

Yesterday I mentioned the major indexes do not fully reflect the underlying deterioration that has occurred in the market place and yesterday saw further internal deterioration. The internals are now very oversold and with the market trading more than a ½% lower a few hours before the open, things are going to become even more [Read More]

This is Going to Make the Next Three Days Quite Interesting

Larry Connors

The major indexes do not fully reflect the underlying deterioration that has occurred in the market place. Nearly 20% of the S&P 500 stocks come into the day with 2-period RSI readings under 5. This type of reading usually occurs after the indexes have been hit hard; not after small pullbacks. What we will see [Read More]

Economic News will Dominate the Rest of the Week

Larry Connors

The rest of the week will be dominated by economic news with the Federal Open Market Committee meeting, the first look at Q2 GDP, and the monthly employment situation report all coming over the next four days. Today the market is neutral. It was good to see yesterday’s intraday recovery and with volatility picking up [Read More]

Would Be Best to See this Pullback Last a Few Days

Larry Connors

In spite of Friday’s pullback, the market is barely oversold (in fact QQQ is neutral). With volatility rising it would be best to see this pullback last a few days in order to continue to lessen the excessive bullishness that’s out there. For a free trial to the Daily Battle Plan, click here!

We’d Expect to See a Short-Term Pullback

Larry Connors

No change from yesterday. The market has now gone a week since a pullback or being oversold so we’d expect to see a short term pullback within a day or so. For a free trial to the Daily Battle Plan, click here!

Many Momentum Stocks have begun their Ascent Again

Larry Connors

The market remains slightly overbought today. Volatility has moved back down and many of the momentum stocks which rose to silly levels in February and then crashed have begun their ascent again (a few like SFUN and POWR rose over 10% yesterday). Overall though nothing has changed and any pullbacks should continue to be viewed [Read More]

Volatility is Beginning to Move Back Down

Larry Connors

The market is slightly overbought today. Volatility is beginning to move back down and any pullbacks should continue to be viewed as short-term buying opportunities. For a free trial to the Daily Battle Plan, click here!

Every Pullback/Bear Market Starts the Same Way

Larry Connors

There’s been an obvious change in the market’s behavior over the past week with volatility finally showing some life. Here’s the reality; every pullback/bear market starts the same way; it starts with volatility rising. But not every rise in volatility leads to a pullback/bear market. From a historical VIX level, volatility is still extremely low. [Read More]

Prices will be Dictated Early this Week by Yellen

Larry Connors

The market hasn’t moved more than 1% in 3 months. To put in perspective how rare this is, the last time it occurred was in 1995. The market is back in neutral territory and prices will be dictated early this week by Fed Chairwomen Yellen’s semi-annual testimony. Obviously any perceived change of tone will move [Read More]

Everyone Could be Put All-In

Larry Connors

Wow. If there were any short sellers left, they threw in the towel yesterday. Today may turn out to be the most interesting day of the month. The market is now in short-term neutral territory. After yesterdays intraday reversal, a move higher during the day today could put everyone all-in. Today’s Potential Opportunities on Further [Read More]
