Market Testing Major Support Amid Weak Internals
The Asbury 6, our Tactical risk management model, is a combination of six diverse market metrics that we have combined to look beyond the day-to-day, up-and-down noise of the stock market to determine its actual health — in much the same way as a doctor first checks the patient’s vital signs during an office visit.
We view the “A6” as a lie detector test for the market. It helps us to identify real, sustainable market advances or declines from computer-driven traps for investors — the latter which are often generated by algorithmic (computerized) trading which now accounts for as much as 80% of daily market volume.
The Asbury 6, as shown below, is currently on a February 21st Negative signal all constituent metrics are currently red or bearish. The S&P 500 has declined by as much as 4.7% since then.
It would take four green (bullish) constituent metrics to turn the “A6” back to positive and suggest a new Tactical buying opportunity in the S&P 500. Until then, our risk management model indicates a very internally weak stock market that is vulnerable to a deeper decline.
More About The Asbury 6: The Asbury 6, updated daily in our Research Center, is a combination of six diverse market metrics that were combined to look beyond the day-to-day, up-and-down noise of the stock market to determine its real health — in much the same way as a doctor checks the patient’s vital signs during an office visit. The “A6” helps us to identify real, sustainable market advances or declines from computer-driven traps for investors. Four or more metrics in one direction indicate a Tactical bias. The dates in each cell indicate when each individual constituent turned either positive (green) or negative (red). When all Asbury 6 are positive, market internals are the most conducive to adding equities exposure to portfolios.
The Asbury 6’s current Negative status is particularly important right now because the S&P 500 is testing major underlying support at 3864 to 3762. If this support is broken, it will suggest that the 2022 major downtrend in the US stock market is resuming — and would clear the way for a much deeper decline.
