Liquidity May be Leaving the Markets

Stock-Markets

Good Morning!

SPX appears to have completed its first impulse from the high on Thursday. This morning’s Premarket shows SPX up about 12 points, and may go as high as the lower trendline of the Flag or Wedge formation at 1980.00. That would constitute a 34% retracement, which would be average for this position. But the futures are already showing weakness, so there are no assurances of that target being met.


Bloomberg leads the cheerleaders, “Investors hate stocks-- again.

Amid a six-year bull market that’s notable mainly for how little conviction there is in it, equity sentiment is plunging at a historic rate, falling by some measures at the fastest pace since Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker had just finished pushing up interest rates in the 1980s. The cost to hedge against stock losses is soaring, valuations are contracting, and bearishness among professional stock handicappers is rising the most in three decades.”

While Bullard slams the same group, “When The Fed's own cheerleader-in-chief (see October 2014)slams you for cheerleading, you know it's gone too far. In a stunning 30 second clip on CNBC this morning, St. Louis Fed head Jim Bullard sent a message to "your friend Cramer", saying "The Fed cannot permanently raise stock prices, "adding, rather astonishingly to the anchors, "to have [Cramer] cheerleading for lower rates 24 hours a day is unsavory."

Meanwhile, TNX is also challenging the 2-hour mid-Cycle resistance at 21.74, in harmony with SPX.

Bloomberg opines, “Global markets don’t know what to make of the Federal Reserve anymore.

Treasuries and emerging-markets stocks fell as three Fed policy makers argued that interest rates may rise this year, days after a September increase was rejected amid financial-market volatility.”

One of the relationships that I noticed while updating my Cycles Model this weekend is that the Liquidity Cycle is now in sync with Treasury yields. Note the last Cycle low in Yields also corresponded with a lack of liquidity in stocks and bonds on August 24. We may be about to see a self-fulfilling death spiral, where stocks sell off, driving rates down, reducing liquidity even further.

USD is probing higher at 95.64 this morning. Whether it is able to reach mid-Cycle resistance at 95.95 is in question. Along with declining liquidity, we may see a declining US Dollar through mid-October.

Gold futures reversed down to 1129.30 this morning. It has retraced nearly 50% of that decline in the past hour and appears capable of resuming the plunge momentarily.

Crude oil also appears to have completed a retracement bounce and may also resume its decline.

STOXX made a 30-point bounce this morning after challenging its Cycle Bottom support at 3147.29. That bounce now appears to be over and a resumption of the decline in EuroStoxx may begin later this morning.

What we may be watching is liquidity bleeding out of the patient. It appears to be on the verge of being critical again.

Regards,

Tony
