Closing Market Commentary For 06-06-2014

Anther interesting session behind us. The $VIX dropped to the lowest point since 02-26-2007, the SP500 tipped the high mark at 1949.44 and the DOW melted up to 16924.28. What does this mean, I am not sure, but I am not buying long. In fact I increased my cash position as it is just not worth the agration of 'hoping' I might another 15%.

By 4 pm the bulls party music was loud an raunchy and the overall situation smelled something like, you know, BS.

However, the more talk of a correction only pushes the markets higher it seems, but it would be foolish to ignore some thoughts that this might be the aging bull that is starting to get tired.

Correction 2014: Are You Prepared?

Summary

  • The S&P 500 is now up over 180% since troughing in March 2009 and it has been almost 3 years since the market experienced a 10% correction.

  • Historically, market corrections happen approximately every 2 years on average.

  • We think that this rally is getting very long in the tooth and we wouldn't be surprised if we have a healthy pullback in the coming weeks or months.

  • The cost of protection is cheap and investors should consider hedging their portfolios.

And for a reality check. I have been lamenting for weeks that the rising of the market is directly disproportional to the falling volume.

A Reality Check ...

Today's chart shows the DJI on a weekly basis with its weekly volume levels since 2006.

Question for today: How low do you think the volume can go with the DJI still going higher?

ChartHere

The short term indicators are leaning towards the hold side at the close. The all important signs of reversal, up or down, have not been observed so we are mostly, at best, neutral and conservatively holding. The important DMA's, volume and a host of other studies have not turned and that is not enough for me to start shorting. The SP500 MACD has turned up, but remains above zero at 16.97. I would advise caution in taking any position during this volatile transition period although Barchart.com shows a 16 % sell. (was 56% buy this morning) Investing.com members' sentiments are 66 % bearish.
