U.S. dollar breaking down; Gold breaking out The S&P 500 is consolidating under 2,954 - logical resistance - as market participants are in wait-and-see mode for incremental trade news ahead of the Trump/Xi G20 meeting later this week. While a breakout is certainly possible, we believe additional consolidation is the more likely scenario. Below we highlight a mix of positive and negative developments which lead us to this conclusion along with updates on other big picture trends. • U.S. dollar (DXY) breaking down, Treasury yields remain suppressed.

Vermilion Compass: Weekly Equity Strategy

We view the YTD lows (~2,530) as an important area of support and some sort of a bounce, or at least a pause, is to be expected. The question is whether this level ultimately holds. Our outlook remains cautious and we put a high probability on a breakdown to new lows given weak longer-term internals and continued leadership of defensive Sectors, while banks and small-caps are hitting new price and RS lows. Some clarity on Fed policy should come on Wednesday, and may provide ...

Vermilion Compass: Weekly Equity Strategy

Cautious outlook intact; Downgrading Manufacturing Relatively solid earnings results have failed to support the market amid an ongoing host of concerns including, but not limited to, rising interest rates and a potential Fed policy mistake, and also a strong dollar and China-U.S. trade war fears. With the February low of ~2,532 only about 4% lower from current levels on the S&P 500 and seemingly no resolution in sight to the aforementioned concerns, we remain extremely cautious and expect consolidation, volatility, and lower prices to continue as the market searches for a bottom. • Sector Re...
