If you followed the rotation as I pointed out the day before each one happened, you not only had a profitable week-you reduced your stress level and more importantly, sighed relief that a market that has been dubbed as “Rigged” still has some transparency left in it for those who can read the tea leaves.
We began last week, expecting the rotation first to the Financials. Then, the Regional Banks,followed by Biotechnology, Retail ending with Homebuilders and Metal Mining on Friday.
The small caps (also relatively transparent) made its move as well. What illuminated these moves and kept us one step ahead all week? Simple: The breakaway gap that began 9 trading sessions ago in S&P 500. Traders wait a lifetime for technical signals like that. Then, as I firmly believe technical patterns precede fundamentals, Draghi came out waving his magic wand.
What’s up for this week? Ownership of equities (or market participation) has dropped to an over 50-year low indicating a profound mistrust of stocks. What does that mean? Herd mentality.When those absentee investors come in to buy, buy, buy, we shall see the predicted 220 price target in SPY and the blow off. Most likely, just in time for midterm elections.
