Technical Market Report for July 25, 2015

The good news is:
• The market is oversold and due for a bounce.


The negatives

Prices began following the breadth indicators downward last week and there is no evidence of a bottom.

The first chart covers the past 6 months showing the S&P 500 (SPX) in red and a 10% trend (19 day EMA) of NYSE new lows (NY NL), in blue. Dashed vertical lines have been drawn on the 1st trading day of each month. NY NL has been plotted on an inverted Y axis so decreasing new lows move the indicator upward (up is good).

NY NL moved sharply downward last week.

NY New Lows Chart

The next chart is similar to the one above except it shows the NASDAQ composite (OTC) in blue and OTC NL has been calculated from NASDAQ data.

OTC NL also moved sharply downward last week.

OTC New Lows Chart

The next chart covers the past 6 months showing the SPX in red and a 40% trend (4 day EMA) of NYSE new highs divided by new highs + new lows (NY HL Ratio), in blue. Dashed horizontal lines have been drawn at 10% levels for the indicator, the line is solid at the 50%, neutral level.

NY HL Ratio moved downward finishing the week at a very weak 18%.

NY HL ratio Chart

The next chart is similar to the one above except it shows the OTC in blue and OTC HL Ratio, in red, has been calculated from NASDAQ data.

OTC HL Ratio fell to 40%.

The positives

Many of the breadth oscillators are near extremes so the market is due for a bounce.

New lows are at dangerous levels, however, this will make the identification of a bottom easy when it comes because new lows will suddenly disappear.


Seasonality

Next week includes the last 5 trading days of July during the 3rd year of the Presidential Cycle.

The tables below show the daily change, on a percentage basis for the last 5 trading days of July during the 3rd year of the Presidential Cycle.
