Breadth Study Suggests that Stock Market Bottom is Already In

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018 Apr 19, 2018 - 03:14 PM GMT

By: Troy_Bombardia

Stock-Markets

Last week we demonstrated a momentum+breadth study which supported the medium term bullish case for the stock market.

Now let’s look at the short term case for the stock market. Is the stock market’s EXACT bottom already in?

The NYSE cumulative Advance-Decline Line (one of the best breadth indicators) just made a new all-time high yesterday while the S&P 500 has yet to make a new high.


Charts courtesy StockCharts.com

What happens historically when:

  1. The S&P 500 makes a 10%+ “small correction”, and….
  2. The Advance-Decline Line makes a new high?

Is the S&P 500’s exact bottom already in? Here are the historical cases (based on correction start dates):

  1. April 2, 2012
  2. July 16, 2007
  3. January 3, 2000
  4. July 19, 1999
  5. October 7, 1997
  6. February 19, 1997
  7. May 23, 1996
  8. January 3, 1990
  9. August 27, 1986
  10. September 25, 1967
  11. May 13, 1965
  12. September 23, 1955

Let’s look at these historical cases in detail.

April 2, 2012

The Advance-Decline line made a new all-time high before the S&P did. The S&P did not make a lower low after the A/D line made new highs.

July 16, 2007

The S&P 500 made a new high before the A/D line did. The A/D line did not go on to make a new high.

This historical case does not apply to today because the A/D line has already made a new high.

January 3, 2000

The S&P 500 made a new high before the A/D line did. The A/D line did not go on to make a new high.

This historical case does not apply to today because the A/D line has already made a new high.

July 19, 1999

The S&P 500 made a new high before the A/D line did. The A/D line did not go on to make a new high.

This historical case does not apply to today because the A/D line has already made a new high.

October 7, 1997

The S&P 500 made a new high before the A/D line did. This historical case does not apply to today because the A/D line has already made a new high.

February 19, 1997

The S&P 500 made a new high before the A/D line did. This historical case does not apply to today because the A/D line has already made a new high.

May 23, 1996

The S&P 500 made a new high before the A/D line did. This historical case does not apply to today because the A/D line has already made a new high.

January 3, 1990

The S&P 500 made a new high before the A/D line did. The A/D line did not go on to make a new high.

This historical case does not apply to today because the A/D line has already made a new high.

August 27, 1986

The S&P 500 made a new high before the A/D line did. This historical case does not apply to today because the A/D line has already made a new high.

September 25, 1967

The S&P 500 made a new high before the A/D line did. The A/D line did not go on to make a new high.

This historical case does not apply to today because the A/D line has already made a new high.

May 13, 1965

The S&P 500 made a new high before the A/D line did. The A/D line did not go on to make a new high.

This historical case does not apply to today because the A/D line has already made a new high.

September 23, 1955

The Advance-Decline line made a new all-time high before the S&P did. The S&P did not make a lower low after the A/D line made new highs.

Conclusion

It is rare for the cumulative Advance-Decline line to make a new high before the S&P 500 does. Only 2 of these 12 cases saw this happen. But when this did happen, the S&P’s bottom was already in. The S&P did not go on to retest or make a lower low.

This suggests that February 9, 2018 was the bottom of this stock market correction. The bottom is already in.
