Stock Market Another Fail Attempt

Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2023 Dec 17, 2022 - 10:50 PM GMT

By: Donald_W_Dony


Following the December 06, 2022, Market Minute titled "Recap of key market structure going into Q1" The benchmark equity index (S&P 500) has made another failed attempt to rise. In mid-December, the index reached the downward sloping trend at 4070 at immediately retreated.

This is the fourth failed attempt to cross the line.  

The S&P 500 is now down 19% since the start of this year (Chart 1).

There are a number of factors that are contributing to the index's decline.

1) The bull market is very mature. It has been advancing now for 14 years.

2) Record high inflation. Inflation recently hit a 40-year high.

3) The rapid rise in interest rates. The Fed has delivered four jumbo rate increases of 0.75%. The December print of 0.50% only adds to the swift increase.

4) An inverted yield curve since mid-July (Chart 2). Since the 1960's whenever the US yield curve has been inverted for longer than 6 weeks, a recession and sharp market correction occur. The yield curve has been inverted for 23 weeks.

There are a number of other deteriorating economic signals. US home sales are at the lowest levels in 10 years, CPI continues to hold at near-record levels, and US business confidence is rapidly declining and is now at a level not since 2020.

Bottom line: Stock markets are continuing to decline. Mature equity markets, record inflation, and inverted yield curves are sending signals of challenges ahead.

Our models point to a sharper weakening in Q1. Our target for the S&P 500 is 3250, 27,700 for the Dow and 18,000 for the TSX.
