Stock Market Rally Should Take a Breather Next Week

Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets Mar 28, 2009 - 06:46 PM GMT

By: Mike_Burk

Stock-Markets

The good news is: No new lows (0) were recorded on the NYSE last Thursday.

Short Term - Between the low of March 9 and the high of last Thursday:


The Russell 2000 (R2K) was up 29.7% in 13 days.

The NASDAQ composite (OTC) was up 25.1% in 13 days.

The S&P 500 (SPX) was up 23.1% in 13 days.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) was up 21.0% in 13 days.

Volatility has spiked. Usually volatility spikes are caused by downward moves, but during this spike the trend has been upward.

The chart below covers the past 2 years showing the SPX in red and an indicator showing the average of the absolute value of the daily percentage change of the SPX over the previous 21 trading days. Dashed vertical lines have been drawn on the 1st trading day of each month.

I showed a chart similar to this one last November when the value was near its high point of 4.1% and pointed out that the highest level recorded had been in November of 1931. Not even the period around the crash of 87 came close.

The spike in volatility last October - November lasted much longer than the spike in 1931. There was a rally in February - March of 1932 that brought another smaller spike in volatility modestly similar (the spike was caused by an upside movement rather than a downside one) to the one we are seeing now.

If the current pattern plays out similar to the 1931 - 1932 pattern prices will move sideways for a week or two before resuming their decline.

Intermediate term

On March 6 there were 827 new lows on the NYSE and 567 on the NASDAQ. Those numbers are big enough to suggest a high likelihood of a retest of the March 9 lows.

I use a 5% trend (39 day EMA) of the various components in my volume indicators. One of them NYSE volume of advancing issues (NY UV) hit an all time high last Thursday. I could find only one other example of NY UV hitting an all time high shortly after a market low, 1987.

The chart below covers the past year showing the SPX in red and NY UV in green. There was a little build up of NY UV after the November low, but nothing like we have seen in the past two weeks.

The next chart is similar to the one above except it shows the period around the 1987 crash.

Seasonality

Next week includes the last 2 trading days of March and the 1st 3 trading days of April during the 1st year of the Presidential Cycle.

The tables show the daily return on a percentage basis for the last 2 trading days of March and the 1st 3 trading days of April during the 1st year of the Presidential Cycle. OTC data covers the period from 1963 - 2008 and SPX data from 1928 - 2008. There are summaries for both the 1st year of the Presidential Cycle and all years combined.

Average returns over all years have been modestly positive while average returns during the 1st year of the Presidential Cycle have been negative.

Last 2 days of March and first 3 days of April.
The number following the year represents its position in the presidential cycle.
The number following the daily return represents the day of the week;
1 = Monday, 2 = Tuesday etc.

Money supply (M2)

The money supply chart was provided by Gordon Harms. Money supply growth has remained stalled.

Conclusion

It is possible the market could go higher next week, but pretty soon it is going to have to take a rest.

I expect the major indices to be lower on Friday April 3 than they were on Friday March 27.

Thank you,
