Midday Market Commentary For 06-24-2014
The SP500 reached a new historic high this morning (1968.17) on moderate to low volume as the $VIX headed down (10.89). Now that the Tuesday 'up day' has done its thing, what does tomorrow have to offer?
By noon, the averages were off the morning highs and sliding along sideways in the green on low to anemic volume.
Notice to Bears: Bull Party is in full swing and they want all the 'Sheeples' to join in.
The short term indicators are leaning towards the hold side at the midday. 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 flat, but remains above zero at 17.34. I would advise caution in taking any position during this volatile transition period although Barchart.com shows a 32 % buy. (up from 0% hold this morning) Investing.com members' sentiments are 60 % bearish and Investors Intelligence sets the breath at 68.7 % bullish with the status at Bear Correction.
