Market Rise Analysis
The recently revived stock market rebound was precipitated by the CPI inflation hype witnessed on Tuesday. The major indices and the Russell 2000 all fell below the 50-day moving averages. The Dow Jones cut its lows last week while the S&P 500 came close to doing so. The Nasdaq wiped out most of the gains from the previous four sessions.
Leading stocks, many of which have seen some strong gains in recent days, also suffered on Tuesday. The losers defeated the gainers, after a strong market expansion in recent days.
Apple stock showed malicious action on Tuesday. Tesla also pulled back, after some lower volume gains, but its chart looks a little better.
While Pure Storage and Nio still look OK, the odds are that they will falter if the market comes under more pressure.
The stock market has rebounded over the past several days in part due to expectations of an inflation report. This, in turn, would prompt the Fed to start raising interest rates less aggressively.
But after the hot inflation report, Nomura Securities expected the Fed’s policy makers to raise interest rates by 100 basis points on September 21. Late Tuesday, Ed Yardeni of Yardeni Research said a full percentage point Fed rate hike was “likely” over 75 basis points. .
Markets are fully pricing in at least 75 basis points for the third consecutive meeting of the Federal Reserve next week. But there is now a nearly a third chance of 100 basis points, up from 0% before the CPI data. Markets are also betting on a higher year-end rate.
10-year Treasury yields have continued their aggressive rally over the past several weeks. Not coincidentally, the dollar rebounded after turning lower during the market’s four-day advance.
Having a more aggressive Fed, higher Treasury yields and a stronger dollar isn’t a great recipe for stocks. This is especially true when the markets have been betting on the opposite.
The question now is where the market is headed from here. Will major indices pull back from last week’s lows and head towards June’s low? The market is likely to be range bound as Wall Street awaits actual signs that the Fed will slow rate hikes.
What are you doing now
Investors may want to take profits as Tuesday’s CPI inflation report approaches, given the low-volume advances are good news. At this point, you may want to conserve remaining gains from recent purchases, or cut losses.
It is a good idea to keep the exposure light. Hot inflation data has undermined the short-term bullish case for an interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve, with the market’s direction now uncertain.
At some point, whether it’s next week, next month, or next year, the market will be in a clear uptrend. This is when the real money will be made.
So work on your watchlists, focusing on relative strength and signals that large institutions are taking stock.
