Investors Intelligence sets the breath Above 50 bullish 42.8% Overbought / Oversold Index ($NYMO) anything below -30 / -40 is a concern of going deeper. Oversold conditions on the NYSE McClellan Oscillator usually bounce back at anything over -50 and reverse after reaching +40 oversold.

What Is Moving the Markets

Here are the headlines moving the markets.

Wall Street rises after China market steadies

(Reuters) - U.S. stocks were higher on Tuesday and were on track to break a five-day losing streak as a selloff in Chinese stocks eased and investors shifted focus to corporate earnings.

After strong quarter, Ford aims to 'disrupt like a startup'

Wall Street Still Didn't Get The Memo - China's Done, Top's In!

Submitted by David Stockman via Contra Corner blog,

Bubblevision's Scott Wapner nearly split a neck vessel today denouncing the US stock market sell-off. It was completely unwarranted, he thundered, because China don't have nothin' to do with anything.

Why, insisted CNBC's best dressed pom-pom boy, China's stock market has never been correlated with its economy, and, anyhow, its economy doesn't matter all that much to the S&P 500 because China accounts for only 14% of global GDP.

Besides that, China's stock market is exactly like what Yogi Berra said about his favorite restaurant: It's so crowded, nobody goes there anymore!

That is, according to the talking heads Chinese household's don't go to the bourses, either. Few of them own stock and equities account for only 20% of household wealth compared to upwards of 65% in the US.

So enough of the schwitzing about the red chip sideshow. Buy the dip!

Indeed, that's exactly what the insentient robo-traders did at the close. After banging the 200DMA, they bid the S&P right back-up to Monday's VWAP (volume weighted average price) in the final seconds, thereby filling-up their sell buckets to unload on tomorrow's dip buyers. As Zero Hedge noted,

On the day, US equities staged their standard JPY ignited momo bounce off the 200DMA - running perfectly to VWAP in the S&P, before limping lower...and a mini algo meltup to VWAP at the close... all completely human!!

Cerberus leads U.S. investors gobbling up Europe's bank loans

Stocks Melt-Up On Oil Bounce As JPY Carry Breaks

In case you were wondering WTF... it's oil, as the algos pin to WTI after JPY failed to follow through on overnight intervention...

Of course the ramp is volumeless...

It appears bonds and stocks needed to recouple...

Because fun-durr-mentals. That's why.

US Middle Class Stays Dead: Homeownership Drops To 48 Year Low; Median Asking Rent Soars To All Time High

Three months ago, just as the last Census Homeownership and residential vacancy report hit, Gallup released its latest survey which confirmed just how dead the American Dream has become for tens if not hundreds of millions of Americans.

According to the poll, the number of Americans who did not currently own a home and say they do not think they will buy a home in "the foreseeable future," had risen by one third to 41%, vs. "only" 31% two years ago. Non-homeowners' expectations of buying a house in the next year or five years were unchanged, suggesting little change in the short-term housing market.

As Gallup wryly puts it, "what may have been a longer-term goal for many may now not be a goal at all, and this could have an effect on the longer-term housing market."

Earlier today, the US Census released its latest homeownership data, which confirmed that for what is left of America's middle class, owning a home has become virtually impossible, with the homeownership rate plunging from the lowest level since 1986, or 63.7%, to just 63.4% the lowest reading since the first quarter of 1967.
