Asbury Research: US Stock Market Update, July 17th, 2018
A cursory look at the US stock market shows it to be in pretty good shape. The benchmark S&P 500‘s major and minor trends are up while 5 of our “Asbury 6” key market internal metrics are positive (bullish). A closer look, however, reveals that there are also some significant risks to be aware of.
Two of those risks can be seen in global markets and in market-leading semiconductors. Regarding the former, three major overseas global stock markets — all which are positively correlated to the S&P 500 — have recently slipped into major downtrends. Regarding the latter, the PHLX Semiconductor (SOX, see chart below) Index has made six failed attempts since November 2017 to rise and remain above 1362, which is the March 2000 top-of-the-tech-bubble high.
We are paying special attention to these two factors, plus others — while also closely watching some key index levels here in the U.S. — for further evidence that the market may be moving into a “risk off” environment.
More charts, and much more detailed and specific coverage of individual stocks, ETFs, and US interest rates, plus access to our Correction Protection Model (CPM) are available with an Asbury Research subscription. Contact Us for sample reports and pricing.
