This support, which is easy to spot on the charts, has apparently attracted the “buy the dip” crowd. Internally, however, the market still looks vulnerable over the near term.

    im welcomes back John Kosar CMT, Chief Investment Strategist at Asbury Research LLC. In the S&P 500 Index, John sees it as up against resistance and is looking for a pullback before it advances through resistance levels. On a global basis, John points out strength this year in base metals, energy, and agriculture, and believes this is indicating early signs of global growth and the lessening of global deflation fears. As to gold, John sees this as the early phase of a major bull market, but the positioning of smart money traders are telling him gold is currently overvalued, and it’s not the time to jump in. In oil, the charts show positive momentum, and John believes oil moves higher from here.
