Slow But Not Slow

Slow But Not Slow

S&P 500 bulls need to play good defence now as 4,040 predictably stopped the rally yesterday. The retreat in junk corporate bonds with cyclicals should give the buyers some pause. And as clear risk-off is unlikely to strike today (earnings aren‘t as strong a catalyst to trigger that, and UK figures didn‘t have that power either), we can look forward for both TLT to remain well bid, and tech not totally mirroring its daily strength.

It‘s about the soft landing, and its odds to be dialed back somewhat next – before the hype returns for next week‘s FOMC. For S&P 500 that means a lean day today of quite some chop with 3,990 and 3,955 levels being key.

As stated in yesterday‘s extensive analysis:

(…) Good luck with earnings projections and valuations – and don‘t forget about those two rate cuts priced in for late 2023.

S&P 500 and Nasdaq Outlook

Slow But Not Slow - 1

S&P 500 and 4,010s – that‘s what the buyers are eyeing (to close comfortably above). While today is no true Turnaround Tuesday, we‘re looking at sellers to be having the daily initiative.

Credit Markets

Slow But Not Slow - 2

Bonds are in for a lackluster session, and merely defending current levels with price increases on the long end, would be a success. And constructive for the stock market.
