Market Blast -February 6, 2024

The Fuse

Very similar to yesterday fairness futures are beginning decrease because the market continues to take a danger off strategy following final week’s ‘lower than dovish’ Fed assertion. The futures market is now barely pricing in a lower on the subsequent assembly in March. Shares are mildly oversold right here based mostly on the oscillators turning damaging.

Curiosity Charges are barely increased after leaping up the previous couple of periods. Greater charges are a poison for small cap shares, which have been hit laborious lately. Cash flows are nonetheless robust although and if charges begin to dip we may even see this group begin to carry out. Mortgage charges hit 7% for the primary time shortly.

As shares are modestly decrease within the US within the pre-market over in Europe we noticed the Stoxx 600 achieve about .5%. Shares in Asia had been combined, Japan was down .5% however Shanghai and Hong Kong had been up very robust, 3.2% and 4% respectively. Crude oil is increased by .7% whereas gold is usually flat, silver down modestly.

Earnings final evening from Palantir had been robust however steering lower than anticipated, however the inventory is up robust. Lilly reported sturdy numbers this morning and is up greater than 4%. Spotify is capturing increased as effectively

Shares fell reasonably, dragged decrease by increased rates of interest once more. The Russell 2K was the perpetrator, knocking down different equities. The small index dropped sharply, greater than 1.25% on the day after ending poorly on Friday. So now we have a followthrough day to the draw back for small caps, however the massive cap names proceed to do comparably effectively. We’ll see if the bulls can re-capture the development later within the week.

One other day of poor breadth because the Russell 2K knee-capped the remainder of the market. The oscillators stay damaging too, that might be rehabilitated later within the week with some upside on this index. Nevertheless, volatility is beginning to get heat right here and if we glance beneath the hood the broader market will not be collaborating.

Heavy promoting within the Dow Industrials (DIA) gave that index a distribution day. That is the results of skilled promoting, and whereas sooner or later doesn’t matter, a number of of them in a row might be bother. We’ve already racked up a couple of of those within the IWM and it tends to spill over to the remainder of the market, finally. Markets trending up want participation from all teams and sizes.

Wednesday’s assist at 4,850 remains to be reference level. Shares aren’t overbought right here however are approaching that situation, in the meantime the SPX 500 nonetheless has 5k in its sights. That mark might fall simply this week with the aim sitting about 1% above present ranges. There will probably be celebration but in addition a promote the information impact, too.



What’s it imply?

That was a wasted day by the bulls. Nothing actually particular right here because the VOLD was tanking laborious all day lengthy, the VIX did decline whereas ticks had been unfold out. Discover within the TICK/Q the purchase packages (inexperienced) petered out, whereas the purple ticks elevated all session lengthy. It’s the ‘story throughout the story’. ADD was down all session as effectively. Let’s see if the dip patrons come again this week.

The Dynamite

Financial Knowledge:

  • Tuesday: Eurozone Retail gross sales
  • Wednesday: Mortgage apps, crude oil inventories, client credit score

Fed Watch:
Nothing a lot this week however Chair Powell is interviewed on 60 Minutes for Sunday night. This previous week noticed the committee stand pat on financial coverage however they’re considering the correct timing for charge cuts. That’s more likely to come this yr however not as quickly because the market would love. The info exhibits inflation remains to be too excessive and the financial system is working robust. Not an setting that wants charge cuts.

Shares to Watch

Volatility – The VIX stays low beneath 14%, a harmful degree as a pop in volatility can happen at anytime, sudden. You would possibly recall some years in the past simply after Chair Powell took over there was a large transfer increased in volatility, it was the month of February. One thing to observe for.

Earnings – A deluge of earnings this week as we get a sampling throughout a number of areas together with retail, industrial, expertise, healthcare and leisure. Disney, McDonalds, Lilly and Pepsi will probably be in focus.

Curiosity Charges – Following Friday’s large labor report which confirmed greater than 330K jobs created, rates of interest popped increased because the market begins to cost in fewer charge cuts down the street, as this was telegraphed Wednesday by Fed Chair Powell.
