Technical Stock Market Report
The good news is: The market has recovered from its BREXIT calamity.
The Negatives: The market is overbought.
Over the last 4 trading days of last week the major indices were up 5% - 6%.
After hitting record low yields earlier in the week, 10 year treasuries finished the week yielding 1.44%.
The positives: New highs reached significant numbers by the end of last week while new lows disappeared.
The first chart covers the past 6 months showing the NASDAQ composite (OTC) in blue and a 40% trend (4 day EMA) of NASDAQ new highs divided by new highs + new lows (OTC HL Ratio), in red. Dashed vertical lines have been drawn on the 1st trading day of each month. Dashed horizontal lines have been drawn at 10% levels for the indicator, the line is solid at the 50%, neutral level.
OTC HL Ratio finished the week at a strong 69%.
The next chart is similar to the one above except it shows the S&P 500 (SPX) in red and NY HL Ratio, in blue, has been calculated from NYSE data.
NY HL Ratio finished the week at 93% very strong.
The market is overbought after an interesting two weeks. Next week is likely to be dull -- and without much help from seasonality will probably be down a little.
I expect the major averages to be lower on Friday July 8 than they were on Friday July 1.
