    Stocks Surge For 7th Straight Day As US Macro Data Hits 15-Month Lows

    "Smells Like Victory"
    - Happy Memorial Weekend...



    Let's start with this...





    [​IMG]



    S&P at record highs as US macro data topples to 15-month lows...

    [​IMG]



    Nasdaq hit record highs as Earnings Expectations slump to 2017 lows...

    [​IMG]



    Small Caps remain underwater post-Trump-Dump... Nasdaq is now up 7 days in a row - longest streak since early Feb

    [​IMG]

    NOTE - today was different - no big spike in stocks



    Today saw S&P and Dow glued to the flatline...with a very chaotic end

    [​IMG]



    Volume continues to collapse in this levitation off the Trump Dump...

    [​IMG]



    As the cap-weighted S&P continues to dramatically outperform the equal-weighted S&P (i.e. the big tech names are driving)

    [​IMG]



    S&P Equal weight remains below the March highs...Simply put, without FANG stocks, th emarket has gone nowhere in almost 3 months...

    [​IMG]



    As Citi notes, a close today above 2,405 on the S&P 500 suggests we can rally towards 2,500+ in the coming weeks:

    • Even within trends, markets do not move in straight lines. Rather, market rallies are interspersed between sideways moving markets. In some cases, the majority of a rally is spent in consolidation with the big moves in the trend happening quickly. Such a dynamic is currently at play in the S&P 500.
    • Since the bullish break seen in July 2016, the S&P 500 rallied 14% over 46 weeks through today (this came after over a year of the S&P 500 consistently failing around the 2,100 area). However, most of that time has been spent with the equity market in consolidation/ranges. The actual gains have taken place over just 14 of those 46 weeks in the shape of quick market rallies.
    • We may now be on the verge of another such move. In the prior three rallies since July, a weekly close through the top of the prior range has signaled the start of a multi-week rally. Another break like this would be confirmed with a close today above 2,405.
    • If this is a bullish break, how high can we go? The average rally after the prior three breaks (from the break level) has been 4.2% and a similar move this time would suggest a move to 2,506 in the coming weeks.
    • Beyond that, we continue to view the overall global economic and market backdrop to be positive for Equities and continue to think a move towards 2,750 by year end can be seen
    [​IMG]



    Finally, while AMZN dropped after testing towards $1000 agains today, it closed modestly green again (for the 7th straight day)

    [​IMG]



    Here is a helpful chart in case you were wondering what was driving AMZN's success?

    [​IMG]



    VIX is down 7 straight days and clsoed at the lowest weekly close since 1993...

    [​IMG]



    Short-term VIX crashed a record low...

    [​IMG]



    Treasuries ended the week marginally higher in yield...

    [​IMG]



    But the yield curve (2s10s and 2s30s) have tumbled to cycle lows...

    [​IMG]



    The Dollar index managed to close green on the week after bouncing off the post-Fed drop...

    [​IMG]



    Cable was by far the weakest against the greenback and Yuan the strongest...

    [​IMG]



    Despite dollar ended higher, gold and silver gained on the week...

    [​IMG]



    WTI and RBOB both fell on the week after OPEC disappointed...

    [​IMG]



    Gold and Silver had a great week (with the last now well above pre-fed rate hike lows)

    [​IMG]



    Finally, Bitcoin was hitting the headlines every day this week and ended on a weak note (biggest drop since January) but still up over 10% on the week...

    Authored by Lance Roberts via RealInvestmentAdvice.com,

    Over the last couple of months, I have repeatedly discussed what has been possibly the most “boring” market ever. That was until the previous Wednesday when the market deciding to take a quick “road trip” to the 50-dma.

    It didn’t last long.

    The market promptly went back to sleep in a light volume flotation (note decline in volume during advance) back to old highs. Yesterday, after multiple attempts, the market was finally able to muster a breakout above 2400 as “hopes and dreams” of “Trump tax cuts” once again took the lead over worries of “impeachment.”

    [​IMG]

    While on a short-term basis, the bullish bias continues, which keeps portfolios invested, for now, the intermediate-term (weekly) trends also remain within the confines of the bullish trend from the lows of 2016. However, the “alert” signal still remains from a very high level as markets push back into extreme overbought terrain. This suggests that upside is somewhat limited as there has not been enough of a correction to alleviate more extreme conditions.

    [​IMG]

    Importantly, asnoted on Tuesday, bonds aren’t buying the breakout:



    “Lastly, despite stocks pushing near all-time highs, the bond market continues to flirt with levels close to 2%. The continued move to “risk off” holdings, despite a rising stock market, suggests that ultimately either stocks OR bonds will be wrong. Historically, bonds have tended to be right more often than not.”

    [​IMG]

    Economic data is not buying it either, as data continues to come in softer than expected from new and existing home sales, to autos, to inventories.

    [​IMG]

    Either the stock market is right and everything is going to play “catch up,” or it’s not.

    While we remain long-biased in equities currently, we continue to remain wary of the underlying deterioration in both market and economic data.

    Yes, anything is certainly possible. It just usually isn’t.

    In the meantime, here is what I am reading this weekend.

    June not such a hot month in post-election years
    [​IMG]
    The first month of summer has shone brighter on NASDAQ stocks over the last 46 years as a rule ranking sixth with a 0.7% average gain, up 25 of 46 years. This contributes to NASDAQ’s “Best Eight Months” which ends in June. June ranks near the bottom on the Dow Jones Industrials just above September since 1950. S&P 500 performs similarly poorly, ranking tenth.

    In post-election years since 1953, June still ranks poorly and its average loss for DJIA and S&P 500 increases to –1.2% and –0.7% respectively compared to –0.3% and –0.03% in all years. DJIA in particular struggles, advancing in just three post-election year Junes (1977, 1985 and 1997). NASDAQ and Russell 2000 fare best in June, posting modest average gains.

    VIX Seasonal Low Likely Set, Higher Volatility Expected
    [​IMG]
    Last Wednesday, May 17, the market was walloped with the worst day of the year thus far. Prior to that day, VIX (CBOE Volatility Index) was at historic lows trading at less than 10 for four straight days and actually closed below 10 on May 8 & 9. VIX then slowly inched higher and closed at 10.65 on May 16. Today, VIX closed at 10.68. VIX and the broader market are essentially right back where they were one week ago, but it took four trading days to (nearly) recover that single day’s loss.

    VIX’s 46.4% jump on May 17 could be the first sign that the seasonal low in volatility has already been reached this year. In the following chart, VIX weekly bars appear on top with its 1-year seasonal pattern appearing on the bottom. In a typical year, VIX typically finds a bottom sometime from mid-April to mid-July before briskly rebounding higher through frequently turbulent August and September (since 1950, September is the worst month for S&P 500 and August is second worst based upon average percent change) to a peak in early October. From then until the following April, during the “Best Six Months,” VIX is generally in decline as the market is climbing higher. If VIX has reached its seasonal low for 2017, then more days like last Wednesday could be on their way.

    Is This The Topping Process? Equities, A/D Line & COT Report Continue Sideways
    [​IMG]
    The market has gone virtually nowhere since March 1st and now we have matching sideways action from some solid old school technical indicators. As move into the latter part of the notorious “Sell in May” period we ask ourselves, “Is this the topping process?”

    We are not expecting much more than a typical 5-10% summer/fall correction. But with all the turmoil surrounding Washington and President Trump, markets could get jittery real fast should economic data come in weak or for Wall Street to deliver some disappointments.

    At a bare minimum the usual trading volume slowdown and seasonal weak spot, especially August-October, is likely to give the market pause. Add in underlying underwhelming technical readings from the A/D Lines (Advance-Decline) and COT Report (Commitment of Traders) and a potential topping process begins to emerge.

    The A/D Line, which is a daily cumulative sum of the number of advancing stocks minus declining stocks, has been also moving sideways since March (see Chart above). But most concerning is the downtrend since the end of April in the NASDAQ and Russell 2000 A/D Lines, especially as the NASDAQ Composite Index has been on the rise. This sort of divergence is a bearish signal.

    Then there is the Commitment of Traders (COT) Report on the S&P E-Mini Futures (ES) in the chart below. The COT Report shows the net number of Small Speculators, Large Speculators and Commercial hedgers long or short. The commercials are usually on the right side of the market as they are basically the “house.” Large specs (Fund Managers, Brokerage firms and Wire Houses) also tend to be on the correct side of the trend but less so than small specs. Small specs are notoriously wrong.

    Currently all three are rather flat. A similar reading last January preceded a rally whereas a similar reading early last October was followed be a little selloff. Its May, markets are flat, reading are tepid. Caution is in order.

    The Three Horse Race to $1,000
    May 26, 2017


    While everyone out there seems to be focusing on the race between Alphabet (GOOGL) and Amazon.com (AMZN) over who will be the first to break the $1,000 barrier, there’s also another stock out there that’s on the cusp of crossing $1,000 for the first time. That stock is Markel (MKL), which is probably a name you have never heard of. With a market cap of just under $14 billion, MKL is not a behemoth like AMZN or GOOGL, but it’s still not small. MKL is actually an insurance company that is often referred to as a “baby Berkshire” as it has a large insurance underwriting business as well as a portfolio of equities that the company holds. As shown in the chart below, MKL is just as close to breaking $1,000 as AMZN and GOOGL.

    [​IMG]

    While it is always dangerous to count your chickens before they’re hatched (see our post on the DJIA’s attempt to break 1,000 that spanned multiple decades), if one, two, or all of the stocks listed above do manage to break the $1,000 level, they will join a very exclusive club. As shown in the table below, there are currently just four stocks listed on US exchanges trading above $1,000/share with market caps of more than $500 mln that trade more than 250 shares per day. Those four stocks are Berkshire Hathaway (BRK/a), Seaboard (SEB), NVR, and Priceline (PCLN). What distinguishes AMZN and GOOGL from the others, though, is their liquidity. With average daily volumes of more than 1.5 million shares per day, the average daily dollar volume of these two stocks is well in excess of any other stock in the group.

    S&P 1500 Most Heavily Shorted Stocks
    May 26, 2017


    Short interest figures for the middle of May were released after the close on Wednesday, and below we wanted to provide our updated list of the most heavily shorted stocks in the S&P 1500. The table below lists the 20 stocks in the S&P 1500 that have more than one-third of their free-floating shares sold short as of the middle of May. For each stock, we have also included its performance so far in the month of May. First, in terms of performance, the most heavily shorted stocks are underperforming the broader market. On an average basis, things don’t look that bad as the 20 stocks listed are up 0.63% compared to a gain of 1.11% for the S&P 1500. This average, however, is being skewed by some big gains in stocks like World Acceptance (WRLD), which is up over 50%, and Applied Optoelectronics (AAOI), which is up 40%. On a median basis, these 20 stocks are actually down more than 5%. Breadth among the most heavily shorted stocks further highlights the underlying weakness as just eight of the twenty names are positive for the month of May.

    Looking at the list of individual names, a lot of them are probably unfamiliar to most people. One of the most notable names, however, is right at the top of the list as Shake Shack (SHAK) is the most heavily shorted stock in the S&P 1500 with just under half of its float sold short. People may love the burgers, fries, and shakes, but the stock is the most hated on the Street. Other notable names on the most shorted list include RH, Avis (CAR), JC Penney (JCP), Stamps.com (STMP), and Big Lots (BIG).

    i wasn't around to see the globex session in the /ES last night but just checking now i see we made yet another ATH in the ETH (extended trading hours) ... the shadowtrader guys would be all over this telling us how the high made in the extended hours usually does not mark an end to the up move ... usually would need to see the new high printed during the RTH (regular trading hours) with some excess on the top to boot
