Major Averages Continue Latest Bounce Back

The S&P 500 gained 0.7%, while the Dow increased 193 points. The Nasdaq Composite advanced 0.6% after yesterday snapping a seven-day losing streak that had been worst run since November 2016. The volume totals reported were mixed, higher than the prior session on the NYSE and lighter on the Nasdaq exchange. Breadth was slightly positive as advancers led decliners by an 8-7 margin on the NYSE and by 4-3 on the Nasdaq exchange. There were 8 high-ranked companies from the Leaders List that hit new 52-week highs and were listed on the BreakOuts Page, up from 4 on the prior session. New 52-week lows totals still solidly outnumbered new 52-week highs on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange. The market uptrend is now under pressure (M criteria). Any sustainable rally requires a healthy crop of leading stocks hitting new highs.

PICTURED: The S&P 500 Index rebounded toward its 50-day moving average (DMA) line. The recent low defines near-term support where a violation would raise greater concerns of a more serious market correction.

All three indexes are set to rise for the week, aiming to end a three-week rout. U.S. equities finished higher after a volatile session Thursday as investors assessed the latest remarks from Federal Reserve (Fed) Chair Jerome Powell. The Fed chief reiterated his previous hawkish stance from the Jackson Hole economic symposium, saying the central bank will fight inflation “until the job is done,” heightening expectations of another 75-basis point (0.75%) rate hike on September 21.  

In other central bank news, the European Central Bank (ECB) raised rates by a widely anticipated 75 basis points (0.75%) in their latest move to curb inflation. U.S. Treasury yields climbed following the ECB’s jumbo rate hike, with the yield on the benchmark 10-year note adding four basis points (0.04%) to 3.31%. The yield on the two-year note jumped six basis points (0.06%) to 3.50%. In commodities, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude continued to pare weekly losses, closing up 1% to $82.79/barrel after yesterday falling to its lowest level since mid-January. Demand concerns were exacerbated following news that China’s megacity Chengdu was extending its COVID-19 lockdown. On the data front, weekly initial jobless claims declined for a fourth consecutive period, coming in at a three-month low of 222,000. Separately, the Fed reported consumer credit increased by a smaller-than-anticipated $23.8 billion in July.

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

The Bank Index ($BKX +2.84%) and Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD +1.36%) both posted influential gains while the Retail Index ($RLX +0.49%) also edged higher. The Biotech Index ($BTK +3.38%)  led the tech sector higher while the Semiconductor Index ($SOX +1.79%) and Networking Index ($NWX +0.98%) also notched solid gains.  Commodity-linked groups also had a positive bias as the Gold & Silver Index ($XAU +1.39%) posted a solid gain while the Oil Services Index ($OSX +0.64%) and Integrated Oil Index ($XOI +0.29%) both edged higher.

 Chart courtesy of www.stockcharts.com


PICTURED: The Bank Index ($BKX +2.84%) rebounded back above its 50-day moving average (DMA) line after the latest slump. The July low defines a very important near-term support level to watch if weakness continues.

Hit a New High After a 4-Week Tight Pattern of Closes

Catalyst Pharma Inc (CPRX +$0.38 or +2.56% to $15.25) was highlighted in yellow with pivot point cited based on its 8/23/22 high plus 10 cents in the earlier mid-day report (read here). It hit a new all-time high with +36% above average volume behind today's gain after a very tight 4-week consolidation. It went a little longer after it already formed a "3-weeks tight" with a few weekly changes of less than 2%. For a valid technical buy signal, the minimum volume threshold behind a technical breakout is +40% above average. It already rallied considerably in the weeks before forming its new advanced base pattern. Confirming volume-driven gains might provide greater reassurance that heavy institutional buying demand is still lurking. In fact, the biggest market winners usually had much heavier than normal volume behind their breakouts.

It has an Earnings Per Share rating of 98. CPRX reported Jun '22 quarterly earnings +75% on +46% sales revenues versus the year ago period, its 3rd consecutive quarterly comparison above the +25% minimum earnings guideline (C criteria). Annual earnings (A criteria) growth has been strong since turning profitable in FY '19.

The Medical-Biomed/Biotech industry group is currently ranked 4th on the 197 Industry Groups list, a reassuring sign concerning the L criteria. It has only 84.7 million shares in the public float. The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 311 in Sep '21 to 358 in Jun '22, a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria. Its current Up/Down Volume Ratio of 2.6 is an unbiased indication its shares have been under accumulation over the past 50 days.

Near-term support to watch is at its 50 DMA line ($278.76).
