TODAY'S SPECIAL NOTICE

The market (M criteria) is in a correction. A caution flag has been raised by the technical damage in the major indices coupled with a shrinking list of stocks hitting new highs. Disciplined investors know to raise cash by selling weakening stocks on a case-by-case basis, and to protect that cash by avoiding any new buys until a new rally is confirmed with a follow-through day.


Breadth Negative as Major Averages Continue Slumping

The Dow lost 107 points, while the Nasdaq Composite fell 1.4% amid weakness in Technology shares. The S&P 500 declined 0.8% to its lowest level since mid-July. The volume totals reported were higher than the prior session on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange, indicative of an increase in institutional selling pressure termed "distribution". Breadth was negative as decliners led advancers by almost a 5-1 margin on the NYSE and nearly 4-1 on the Nasdaq exchange. There were 4 high-ranked companies from the Leaders List that hit new 52-week highs and were listed on the BreakOuts Page, versus the total of 5 on the prior session. New 52-week lows totals swelled again and solidly outnumbered shrinking new 52-week highs on both the NYSE and the Nasdaq exchange. The market is now in a correction (M criteria).

PICTURED: The Nasdaq Composite Index fell for a 5th loss in 6 sessions, slumping toward the June low.

U.S. equities finished lower Thursday as recession worries grew following a flurry of central bank policy decisions. Yesterday, the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) implemented a 75 basis point (0.75%) rate hike to bring the benchmark rate up to a range of 3% to 3.25%, its highest level since 2008. Today, the Bank of England announced a 50 basis point (0.50%) rate hike, while the Bank of Japan maintained ultralow interest rates. 

On the data front, initial jobless claims for the week ended September 17 came in at 213,000, up from the prior week’s downwardly revised 208,000 figure. The increase in claims indicates a resilient labor market despite growing signs of a recession. Meanwhile, the second quarter account deficit narrowed due to an increase in exports. The Conference Board leading economic index, a metric for forecasting future economic activity, declined by a larger-than-anticipated 0.3% in August. Rounding out the docket, the Kansas City Fed Manufacturing Activity index unexpectedly slowed in September.

Treasury yields soared, with the yield on the benchmark 10-year note climbing 19 basis points (0.19%) to 3.70%, while the two-year note, which is more sensitive to changes in monetary policy, advanced nine basis points (0.09%) to 4.12%. In commodities, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude climbed 0.7% to $83.48/barrel amid concerns over tight supply following reports of partial military mobilization in Russia. However, a darkening economic outlook and strong U.S. dollar have placed a cap on prices.
