There is an increasing number of forecasts that indicates the stock market will pull back. Although it has not yet been shown in some of the largest indices, it is safe to say that a lot of market strength has been exhausted.
Big rallies are a thing of the past. The S&P 500 has gone 34 days without rising 1% in any of them, the longest in 20 months. And the pool of companies feeling significant price pressure keeps expanding.
The data compiled by Morgan Stanley shows that more than half of the index’s members have suffered peak-to-trough declines of at least 10% since May. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 managed to fall five straight days without straying more than 2% from its all-time high. Yet, some see the stage is being set for a more meaningful dip.
Strategists from the Goldman Sachs Group and Citigroup have issued fresh warnings on the potential for negative shocks to upend the rally. What the market is most worried about is in the next six weeks, including the Fed’s planned reduction in stimulus measures and possible tax increases.
Stocks fell for the first week in three as mixed economic data kept investors on edge about the timing of stimulus tapering. The S&P 500 declined by 1.7% while the Nasdaq 100 fared better, owing to gains in tech megacaps such as Facebook.
Today, pay attention to the direction of the Dow on the 34477 line. Once the Dow falls below the 34477 line, it will open up further downward revision. At that time, pay attention to the support strength of the 33811 line.
Once the Dow gains the support from the 34477 line, divert your attention to the suppression strength of the two positions 34724 and 34990 above. Overall, the Dow continues to have a bumpy ride.
