TODAY'S SPECIAL NOTICE

The market remains in a correction (M criteria), as arguably the rally still needs a solid confirmation. An opportunity for a valid follow-through day remains open unless the recent lows or May 20th lows are violated. 


Major Indices Fell as Most Groups Ended Lower

The Dow lost 269 points, while the S&P 500 fell 1.1%. The Nasdaq Composite declined 0.7%. Volume totals for Wednesday were reported mixed, lighter than the prior session on the NYSE and higher on the Nasdaq exchange. Breadth was negative as decliners led advancers by almost a 3-1 margin on the NYSE and 6-5 on the Nasdaq exchange. There were 30 high-ranked companies from the Leaders List that hit new 52-week highs and were listed on the BreakOuts Page, versus the total of 37 on the prior session. New 52-week highs outnumbered new 52-week lows on the NYSE, but new lows still outnumbered new 52-week highs on the Nasdaq exchange. The major indices have been in a noted market correction (M criteria). Sources at the newspaper, following the Thursday 5/26/22 session, relabeled it a "confirmed uptrend" despite flaws noted in our ongoing market commentaries. Followers of the fact-based investment system know to watch for a follow-through day backed by higher volume which could signal a new confirmed uptrend.

PICTURED: The Dow Jones Industrial Average slumped for a loss with lighter volume. The 3 major indexes cannot be said to be in "healthy" technical shape while all of them are sputtering well below both their 50-day and 200-day moving average (DMA) lines.

Regular readers of this commentary know to be watching closely for signs of truly increasing institutional buying demand. Arguably, the rally still needs confirmation, and an opportunity for a valid follow-through day remains open unless the recent lows or May 20th lows are violated.

U.S. stocks finished lower on Wednesday, snapping a two-session winning streak. Investors weighed a confluence of market headwinds and awaited Friday’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) reading. Risk sentiment remained cautious amid increasing concerns about slowing global economic growth. 

Anxiety about central bank policy tightening continued to be in focus, while a jump in oil prices exacerbated lingering inflation worries. West Texas Intermediate crude climbed 2.6% to $122.56/barrel, near a three-month high. Oil prices were supported by a weekly drawdown in gasoline stockpiles and crude inventories in the largest storage hub in the U.S., highlighting tight supply conditions.

Ten of 11 S&P 500 sectors closed in negative territory with Energy ending narrowly higher. Real Estate, Materials, and Utilities led the downturn. Chipmakers also underperformed, with Intel Corp. (INTC -5.28%) down following a warning about weakening demand. Elsewhere, Altria Group Inc. (MO -8.37%) fell after the tobacco company was the subject of an analyst downgrade. In earnings, Campbell Soup Co. (CPB +1.52%) rose on positive results that included a boost to its full-year sales guidance.

Treasuries weakened, with the yield on the 10-year note up six basis points (0.06%) to 3.04% following a soft auction of the maturity. On the data front, mortgage applications fell 6.5% in the latest week, with demand for mortgages hitting a 22-year low amid rising rates and depressed inventory. Separately, a final April reading of wholesale inventories was upwardly revised to reflect a 2.2% gain.

Financial, Retail, Tech, and Commodity-Linked Groups Fell

The Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD -2.04%) and Bank Index ($BKX -1.72%) created a drag on the major averages and the Retail Index ($RLX -1.11%) also slumped. Commodity-linked groups had a negative bias as the Gold & Silver Index ($XAU -0.70%) and Oil Services Index ($OSX -0.56%) edged lower and the Integrated Oil Index ($XOI -0.09%) finished flat. The Semiconductor Index ($SOX -2.39%) led the tech sector lower and the Networking Index ($NWX -0.52%) suffered a smaller loss while the Biotech Index ($BTK +0.22%) eked out a small gain.
