Developed international markets are nearing breakouts from potential bottom patterns, signaling likely catch-up rallies to the leading U.S. market.European, Japanese, and Canadian indices depict three-month head & shoulders bottoms, with the better-developed patterns found in the STOXX 600 and TSX Composite. Of course, it will take breakouts above their respective resistance levels (“necklines”) to confirm the patterns. But given their presence, and the expanding list of risk-on signals, we believe this should set a foundation for another leg higher.Despite these bottoms in developed markets,...
As a recreational pilot returning to flying after a multi-year hiatus, I’m finding myself paying extra attention to weather – even more so than a typical Midwesterner – especially to wind reports. It’s the wind, after all, which dictates so many variables in flight: from runway selection to flight levels to arrival times. And with the exception of takeoff, the best “kind” of wind is the one at your back, the tailwind.As technicians focusing on relative strength, we approach the market in a similar philosophical vein: identify the technical tailwinds then align over/underweights accordingly.

The market's bullish trajectory remains unchanged. Yet beneath the surface, it's anything but stasis; rotation is visible – and quick. From the beginning of June to now, we can classify this Sector rotation into three acts. Act One: sellers punish growth, especially extended Tech stocks. This seems to have passed, with FANG, semis, and the broad Tech Sector still trading above their price and relative strength uptrends. Tech remains and overweight even though better opportunities exist elsewhere. Act Two: Health Care becomes the market darling. Two weeks ago, the Sector leapt to the top of...

Despite all the rhetoric that can best be associated with “fake news”, the stock market has yet to produce “fake moves”. Historically fake moves are often associated with a narrowing of breadth and the ever so apparent “cult stocks”. While arguably we have some degree of this (e.g. FANG stocks), we continue to believe breadth is much better than what the naysayers' emit. In fact, while breadth is deteriorating in areas of the economy that are often associated as a tax on the consumer--Energy, Consumer Staples, Consumer Discretionary, and Materials--areas associated with growth and end product ...
