The good news is:
• There have been very few new lows on either the NYSE or NASDAQ.

Short Term
Changing volume patterns offer a short term view of what is happening in the market. Unfortunately, volume indicators are easily skewed by seasonal factors.

The chart below covers the last 100 trading days showing the NASDAQ composite (OTC) in magenta and momentum of NASDAQ downside volume (OTC DV) in green. OTC DV is plotted on an inverted Y axis so decreasing downside volume moves the indicator upward (up is good).


OTC DV rose sharply in late December, mostly from the overall seasonally induced decline in volume during that period rather than a strong upward move in prices. Friday OTC DV turned downward. It will be a few days before we can tell if the downward turn Friday was caused by seasonal factors or the beginning of a period of weakness. Recently the periods of weakness have been lasting 3-4 weeks.

Intermediate term
The secondaries lead both up and down. It may be that they simply have higher betas so the moves are exaggerated.

The next chart covers the past 6 months showing the S&P 500 (SPX) in red, the ratio of the Russell 2000 (R2K) to the SPX (R2K / SPX) in green, a 6% trend (33 day EMA) of the ratio in brown and an 11% trend (22 day EMA) of the ratio in blue. The ratio peaked in mid November and hit a low (so far) in mid December.

The last time the market hit its low for the year during summer of the 2nd year of the Presidential Cycle was in 1982.

The chart below is similar to the one above except it covers the period from the summer of 1982 to Mid January 1983. The ratio peaked in late November, bottomed in late December and had a sharp move downward on the first trading day of the year before moving upward. The recent period has been more volatile, but, the patterns are similar. The market was very strong in early 1983.

Seasonality
Seasonally, next week is the week prior to the 2nd Friday in January during the 3rd year in the Presidential Cycle.

In the tables below, OTC data covers the period from 1963 - 2003 and SPX data from 1955 - 2003 during the 3rd year of the Presidential Cycle. There are summaries for both the 3rd year of the Presidential Cycle and all years combined beginning with 1963 for the OTC and 1953 for the S&P 500. Data prior to 1953 has been omitted because the market traded 6 days a week.

The OTC has been up about 80% of the time with an average return of over 2%. The SPX has been up over 75% of the time with an average return of over 1%. This period during the 3rd year of the Presidential Cycle has been stronger than the average for all years.

Report for the week before the 2nd Friday during Jan
The number following the year is the position in the presidential cycle.
Daily returns from Monday to 2nd Friday.

Conclusion
In the coming week the market has a strong, positive seasonal bias.I expect the major indices to be higher on Friday January 12 than they were on Friday January 5.

Last week the OTC was up while the other major indices were down so I am calling last weeks positive forecast a tie.
