Market Blast – April 11, 2024

The Fuse

Fairness futures are mushy as they proceed to push down following yesterday’s stunning transfer decrease. The CPI got here in hotter than anticipated and the indices responded in form. With PPI on deck following two scorching readings this 12 months, bulls are holding their breath that one other leg down gained’t start.

Curiosity Charges are regular after a pointy transfer upward following the CPI. The ten yr hit greater than 4.5% yesterday because the hope for fee cuts within the close to time period fades. Cash flows into bonds has been unfavorable for over a month whereas bond volatility has been rising. If bond bulls proceed to promote we’ll see charges on the ten 12 months hit 4.7% or extra.

The Fed assembly minutes have been out yesterday and just about advised the identical story now we have been listening to – increased for longer. That’s no shock, however the excessive inflation readings this 12 months are, because the market contemplates whether or not a extra hawkish coverage goes into impact. Sure, that may imply extra fee hikes if inflation continues to stay elevated. The ECB has a gathering at this time and may have a coverage assertion.

It wasn’t a lot this explicit quantity was dangerous, moderately there have been a streak of highly regarded numbers of late (all of 2024) which have been largely ignored up till now. With PPI out at this time and prior numbers scorching, will they ignore this one, too?

Breadth was horrendous from the beginning of buying and selling and solely barely received higher. This indicator is firmly on a promote sign. The oscillators went deep unfavorable and if at this time repeats they might attain extreme overbought for the primary time since mid January. That was an interim backside, however the situations at this time are far worse than simply three months in the past.

Reversing Tuesday’s tepid accumulation day was emphatic. Not solely was it notched as distribution, it was the fifth by my rely during the last three weeks. That spells bother with a capital T. Breaking the 5,200 degree as soon as once more on heavy turnover indicators quantity is now on a promote sign (see beneath).

As now we have famous a number of occasions the market appears to wrestle getting via resistance. That appears to be an issue proper now, and until some bullish character reveals up there’s loads of draw back motion available. With the SPX closing at 5,160 there’s a vulnerability to succeed in down to five,050. If that degree is damaged the index will shift to bearish in a short time, and loads of draw back targets will likely be on discover. Nasdaq is clinging to 18K and which will fall within the coming days.

We don’t discuss it an excessive amount of, nevertheless it tagged 1 yesterday, which generally is a reversal signal (finally).
