Three Major Indices Are All Back Above 50-Day Moving Averages

The Dow added 229 points, while the Nasdaq Composite climbed 1.3%. The S&P 500 advanced 1.1% to notch its fourth-straight day of gains and longest winning streak in two months. The volume totals reported were mixed, higher than the prior session on the NYSE and lighter on the Nasdaq exchange. Breadth was positive as advancers led decliners by more than a 3-1 margin on the NYSE and by about 5-3 on the Nasdaq exchange. Leadership improved as there were 21 high-ranked companies from the Leaders List that hit new 52-week highs and were listed on the BreakOuts Page, versus the total of 15 on the prior session. New 52-week highs also outnumbered new 52-week lows on the NYSE for a 2nd consecutive session, however, new lows still outnumbered new highs 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 Nasdaq Composite Index rebounded above its 50-day moving average (DMA) line during a streak of 4 consecutive gains. The recent low defines near-term support where a violation would raise greater concerns of a more serious market correction.

U.S. equities finished higher on Monday as investors await Tuesday’s update on U.S. inflation data. The reading has garnered attention as it is the last major data point before the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) September 21 policy meeting. The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is forecasted to have dipped 0.1% in August, potentially marking the first monthly decline since May 2020. On an annual basis, CPI is projected to have climbed 8.1%, easing from July’s 8.5% year-over-year print but still well above the Fed’s 2% target. 

On the data front, a survey conducted by the New York Federal Reserve showed consumers anticipate the annual inflation rate will fall to 5.7% a year from now, notching its lowest level since October 2021. Falling gas prices are the main driver behind the more optimistic outlook.

Longer-dated Treasuries weakened, with the yield on the 10-year note climbing four basis points (0.04%) to 3.36%. The yield on the two-year note was little changed at 3.56%. In commodities, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude advanced 1.3% to $87.90/barrel following reports of an embargo on Russian oil and doubts over the revitalization of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. A gauge of the U.S. dollar fell 0.6% amid speculation that inflation is nearing its peak, adding support to oil prices.

Retail, Financial, and Commodity-Linked Groups Led Gainers

The Retail Index ($RLX +1.38%) posted a solid gain and modest gains from the Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD +0.86%) and Bank Index ($BKX +0.83%) helped boost the major market averages. Commodity-linked groups were among Monday's best gainers as the Gold & Silver Index ($XAU +1.50%), Oil Services Index ($OSX +1.27%), and Integrated Oil Index ($XOI +1.66%) each posted a solid gain. The tech sector was mostly positive as the Networking Index ($NWX +1.09%) led the way and the Semiconductor Index ($SOX +0.34%) edged higher, but the Biotech Index ($BTK -0.11%) sputtered.

Positive Reversal While Consolidating Above 50-Day Moving Average

Cross Country Healthcare (CCRN +$0.20 or +0.75% to $26.86) managed a "positive reversal" today and closed near the session high.  It was highlighted yellow with pivot point cited based on its 7/21/22 high plus 10 cents in the 9/09/22 mid-day report (read here). There was a "negative reversal" on that session after challenging its 52-week high with 4 consecutive gains. Subsequent gains above the pivot point backed by at least +40% above average volume may trigger a technical buy signal. It faces little resistance due to overhead supply. In recent weeks it rebounded from support near its 200 DMA line with volume-driven gains, then found support at its 50 DMA line while consolidating. 

CCRN has a 99 Earnings Per Share Rating, the highest possible. It reported Jun '22 quarterly earnings +198% on +127% sales revenues versus the year ago period. Prior quarterly comparisons showed strong sales revenues and earnings increases. Annual earnings growth (A criteria) has been strong since a downturn in FY '17 and '18.

The company has only 38.2 million shares outstanding (S criteria). The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 326 in Sep '21 to 400 in Jun '22, a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria. Its current Up/Down Volume Ratio of 1.6 is an unbiased indication its shares have been under accumulation over the past 50 days.  It has a Timeliness Rating of A and Sponsorship Rating of B.
