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]

Excessive Short-Term Exuberance Removed

Larry Connors

In spite of the two-day pullback, the overall market is not extremely oversold. Remember, this pullback is occurring after over 20% of the stocks in the S&P 500 had 2-period RS reading above 99. And QQQ had an RSI reading above 99. All the past two days has done is remove that excessive short-term exuberance. [Read More]

There are Many Oversold ETFs

Larry Connors

Yesterday’s pullback was more than anticipated. I mentioned we were in rare air with overbought conditions coming into the day with over 100 S&P 500 stocks having 2-period RSI readings above 95. Such overbought conditions, especially after three-day weekends are hard to sustain and markets need to pause/pullback to get back to equilibrium. Today there [Read More]

Both Pullback Buyers and Breakout Traders Being Rewarded

Larry Connors

All it took was a very brief pause in the buying to set off yesterday’s fireworks. The last few minutes wasn’t as pretty but the market heads into the last two days before the 4th with a nice head start. Today the market is moderately overbought and volume will likely to dry up here as [Read More]

The More Interesting Battle

Larry Connors

Day one of the second half of the year and with the VIX rising yesterday protection has begun to be put in place. We’ll see how far it goes. The more interesting battle (and the battle that will dictate where prices end the year) is being waged in the bond market. There was unanimous consensus [Read More]
