US Financial Market Chart Book: May 2015

Posted on: Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

The following (green font) is our May US Financial Market Chart Book and accompanying video, which was  made available to Asbury Research subscribers one week ago on May 5th.

We waited a week to show you this month’s “Chart Book”, one of 8 different reports that we produce for Asbury subscribers throughout the month, for 2 reasons: 1) to give our subscribers adequate time to act on the investment ideas there first, and 2) so that those on our Research Excerpts/Blog list can see — in close-to-real-time — the type of research that we provide to subscribers.


Report: US Financial Market Chart Book
Topic: US Financial Market Landscape
Date: May 5th, 2015

A collection of key charts, data, and intermarket analysis that convey our best investment ideas for the US stock market, US market sectors, US interest rates, the US Dollar, and several key commodity prices during the 2nd Quarter, as well as our more intermediate to long term outlook through year end.

It includes an accompanying 20 minute video in which John Kosar, Director of Research, discusses each chart’s implications for upcoming US financial market direction.

The latest data warns of the US stock market’s vulnerability to a 2nd Quarter pullback/correction amid rising long term US interest rates, a weakening US Dollar, and a continuation of the recent rise in commodity prices like copper and crude oil.

Since this report was sent to subscribers on May 5th the yield of the US 10-Year Note has already risen by 12 bps to 2.28% while the US Dollar Index has declined by 2%.  We have been positive on crude oil and copper prices since February, during which time  we have been recommending them to clients as a potential diversification option away from US stocks, the latter which are essentially unchanged since then.  Since February, crude oil prices have risen by 16% and copper prices are up 18%.
