Vermilion ETF Pathfinder: Actionable ETF research & Ideas

As market participants attempt to digest the Trump/Xi G20 meeting and resulting trade cease-fire, the S&P 500 remains below logical resistance at 2,964. While a breakout would not be surprising, we believe additional consolidation is the more likely scenario. • Cyclicals unable to hit new price highs. Helping lead us to believe the market may not be ready to break out is the fact that several key cyclical areas of the market are either making lower highs or remain below resistance. Until we see some breakouts or improvements within cyclical areas we believe additional consolidation is likely....

Vermilion ETF Pathfinder: Actionable ETF research & Ideas

Market purgatory continues Despite the generally positive developments highlighted below, our outlook remains neutral and we see the S&P 500 remaining rangebound between support at 2,720-2,730 and resistance at the all-time highs of 2,954. We continue to believe an eventual breakout or breakdown is likely to be the deciding factor as to where the market is headed next. • U.S. dollar. The U.S. dollar has weakened and is testing critical support. We continue to believe further weakening has the potential to save global risk assets by providing a tailwind for EM/foreign equities and the commodi...

Vermilion Compass: Weekly Equity Strategy

Market rangebound; Upgrading Services In last week's Compass we made several observations which led us to be cautious. All of the concerning observations have since reversed as the market found support: the U.S. dollar weakened, defensive areas underperformed, cyclical areas held at logical support, high yield spreads narrowed, and the 10-year Treasury yield found support. These positive developments are encouraging, however we believe the market remains rangebound. • S&P 500 levels. We believe the market remains in purgatory as technical indicators remain mixed. We see the S&P 500 remaining...

Vermilion Compass: Weekly Equity Strategy

Caution warranted; Downgrading Materials We continue to believe that caution is warranted and we are concerned that key support levels we have been monitoring may not hold -- notably 2,800 and the 200-day MA on the S&P 500 and 4,125 and the 200-day MA on the equal-weighted S&P 500. Below we highlight several negative developments which increase the likelihood of a breakdown below these key S&P 500 support levels. • Cyclicals are deteriorating. We are downgrading Materials (XLB, RTM) to underweight -- reduce exposure and raise cash where possible. The Sector is succumbing to price and RS dete...

Upgrading Staples, Downgrading Energy We are downgrading our outlook to neutral as a result of several negative developments, including breakdowns for EM (EEM) and China (MCHI, FXI), steep price and RS uptrend violations for Technology (XLK, RYT), improving RS for defensive areas of the market, weakness in “Dr.” copper, and crude oil's breakdown. • Key levels on S&P 500, U.S. dollar. Our neutral outlook is supported by a consolidating market and a number of mixed technical signals. On the S&P 500 we are watching for support at 2,800 (with secondary support at the 200-day MA) and resistance a...
