Trend Remains To Be UP

As the month of August reached the half way point, the statistically to be one of the worst month of the year is up so far as measured by the SP500. Even the worrisome small cap index, the Russell 2000 is up for the month. Of course, there’s still half a month to go and anything can happen between now to the end of the month.

Murky Picture

As any seasoned technician will tell you, technical analysis is more of an art than science and it is more subjective than objective. For these reasons, a technician will look for confluence from various technical perspectives in an attempt to form a highly probable conclusion on potential price movement. Note the key word “probable”, because there is always a degree of uncertainty in any form of analysis, whether it is technical or fundamental.

Nothing Has Changed

There is really not much has changed in the market since the last video on the SP500. It appears the market still in a pullback phase. This pullback is not much different than the one in the beginning of 2014. Yes, there are deteriorations within the market breadth. This is an indication of a weakening market, but not necessary an indication of a new bear market(yet). Until a top has been made and confirmed, no one knows the market has topped. In the meantime, wait until major support levels have been tested and broken before categorizing this pullback as a major correction. Continue to be patient and be defensive. Be mindful cash is a position.
