Is a Stock Market Tax Bill Surprise Coming?

Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2017 Dec 01, 2017 - 05:39 PM GMT

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Stock-Markets

SPX futures declined to 2631.25 in the overnight session, but appears to have recovered the majority of its decline. We may have seen the completion of an a-b-c correction that may probe the upper trendline or go to 2650.00 before reversing back down.

ZeroHedge reports, “Markets were thrown for a loop in the past 24 hours, with the Dow first soaring nearly 400 points on Thursday on expectations that tax reform was a done deal, when drama emerged just after the close when the Senate tax bill came this close to falling apart when the proposed "Trigger" was ruled as invalid, pushing a Thursday tax vote to this morning, and as of this moment the bill appears in limbo with the GOP scrambling to find ways to appease the sudden loud opposition among budget hawks.”


NDX futures declined to 6310.00 before bouncing back. It is currently beneath Short-term resistance at 6343.20. It may push back to the top of Wave a at 6374.19 as it completes Wave c of its correction.

ZeroHedge writes, “What wall of worry?

The S&P 500 Index is heading for its longest streak of monthly gains since 2007, and, as Bloomberg reports, investors are betting there’s more to come.

A sudden jump in trading of bullish options on SPY (the ETF tracking the S&P 500), means there has not been more 'investors' holding S&P 500 Calls relative to Puts since Summer 2016...”

VIX futures spiked to 11.69 this morning, but have settled down to a small gain as I write. The VIX performance has been remarkable as equities have been making new highs. Taken by itself, the VIX is on a buy signal. However, equities appear to have some strength, as shown in the Hi-Lo Index. We will wait for the Hi-Lo to come down for a confirmed sell in the SPX.

Another indicator may be the European overnight money rate, which has suddenly spiked. ZeroHedge observes, “While mainstream media eyes have been focused on wrecked tech stocks and towering trannies, professionals in the world's largest liquidity markets have been shocked at the sudden explosion in one chart... that most everyone is hoping is not 'real'.

With central banks puking money at low or negative rates to anyone who can fog a mirror, the sudden spike in EONIA, or overnight money rates in Europe, which we first highlighted yesterday, is quite a shock in a normally stable market.”

TNX is down this morning, but still above critical supports. We may see some mayhem in the bond market as interest rates are due to rise and fall in a whipsaw fashion. A further rally above 24.75 will confirm this observation.

USD futures are drifting higher, but still beneath the 50-day Moving Average at 93.65. It may take another day or so of sideways consolidation until the dam breaks and the decline resumes.

Regards,

Tony
