Did Market Liquidity Increase Enough Last Week?

June 21st Update: Is there enough Liquidity in the market?

June 14th comments ... see the first chart: When there is a lot of money available for buying an item, supply goes down and prices go up.

The same happens in the stock market. When lots of money moves in, Liquidity levels move from Contraction to Expansion. When Liquidity hits an expansion level, competition for stocks will drive prices up and the overall market will propel upward.

Currently, the market is showing a short term bias for the upside, but there is one disturbingly missing ingredient so far.

What is it? Liquidity.

Liquidity levels remain in Contraction. Daily movements are showing oscillating moves, so volatility will remain high while this goes on.

What do we need next? We will need to see the Liquidity indicator move up and make a higher/high than the May 27th high (see the red arrow). It takes inflowing liquidity to sustain up moves because without it, up moves falter. See the next chart for what happened last week ...

Long-Term Liquidity Flows

June 21st comments: Well, last week did give us an increase in market Liquidity by making a higher high.

That was a positive ... but there is still a lot more work to be done on the Liquidity issue. While improving Liquidity levels can be seen, they still remain in Contraction territory which is a high risk condition. In a way, this is saying that Wall Street is not highly confident about the economy as we move forward.

Yes, confidence is improving, but it still remains low. Investors are not afraid to "vote with their money" when they are very confident. Right now, they are voting very cautiously.
