Breadth Negative Behind Losses Thoroughly Erasing Prior Gains

Large losses on Thursday thoroughly erased the prior session's big gains and the major averages finished near their session lows. The Dow dropped 334 points to 16,659 following its biggest one-day gain of 2014. The S&P 500 declined 40 points to 1,928. The NASDAQ fell 90 points to 4,378. The volume totals were reported lighter than the prior session totals on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange, a sign of weaker selling efforts from the institutional crowd. Breadth was solidly negative as decliners led advancers by more than a 7-1 margin on the NYSE and by more than a 6-1 margin on the Nasdaq exchange. There were 15 high-ranked companies from the CANSLIM.net Leaders List that made new 52-week highs and appeared on the CANSLIM.net BreakOuts Page, up from the prior session total of 12 stocks. The new 52-week lows list contracted but still solidly outnumbered new 52-week highs on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange. There was only one gainer among the 6 high-ranked companies currently included on the Featured Stocks Page. Distributional action raised concerns while leadership (stocks hitting new 52-week highs) waned and a deteriorating market (M criteria) environment was repeatedly noted in this commentary.  New buying efforts are discouraged during market corrections while the fact-based investment system prompts disciplined investors to lean toward reducing market exposure.

 

PICTURED: The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell near its 200-day moving average (DMA) line with yet another damaging loss in a recent spurt of losses backed by above average volume.

All 10 sectors in the S&P 500 declined. Energy paced the retreat as WTI crude fell to a 22-month low. Exxon Mobil (XOM -2.95%) and Anadarko Petroleum (APC -6.18%) both fell. Large losses in materials and industrials also weighed on the market as Dow Chemical (DOW -3.54%) and General Electric (GE -1.86%) both slumped. REITs were one of the only bright spots as Ventas (VTR +1.5%) and Vornado Realty Trust (VNO +1.3%) both rose.

Fed speak garnered some attention. St. Louis Fed President James Bullard said he is concerned about the disconnect between the stock market and the central bank's expectations for when rates may increase. In addition, Richmond Fed President Jeffrey Lacker said he sees no sign of inflation estimates moving away from the central bank's 2% target.

Today’s economic data was overlooked. Jobless claims unexpectedly fell by 1,000 to 287,000 and wholesale inventories rose by the most since April.

Treasuries declined and a government auction of 30-year bonds drew below-average demand. The 10-year note fell 3/32 to yield 2.33%. The 30-year bond declined 6/32 to yield 3.07%.

G - Gapped down today, yet it is up from earlier lows. Its 50 DMA line recently acted as resistance after damaging losses raised concerns and triggered a technical sell signal. Repeatedly noted with caution - "Recently reported earnings for the Jun '14 quarter below the +25% minimum earnings guideline (C criteria) raising fundamental concerns."
