Stock Market Begins Important Beta Phase Decline

|Includes: DIA, QQQ, SPDR S&P 500 Trust ETF (SPY)

Last week, our analysis suggested that the beta high (NYSE:BH) of the current short-term cycle in stocks (NYSEARCA:SPY) would likely form in conjunction with the June announcement from the Federal Reserve. As expected, the stock market has declined sharply since the announcement, generating a cycle high signal that indicates the beta phase decline is likely in progress.

The stock market continues to exhibit behavior consistent with the formation of a cyclical top and the character of the developing beta phase decline will likely provide the next signal with respect to long-term direction, so it will be important to monitor price behavior closely during the next three weeks.
