Weekly SP-500 Trend Commentary

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

*** Status: Market Bullish - Transition to Bond Funds ***

The general market trading filter I use (SP-500 53 day CCI) is at 134 indicating Market Up. My multiple composite SP-500 indicators on the daily chart are both positive also providing a bullish signal. As seen at the right the CCI(53) indicator is positive for all the four major indices. The index is now broken through the resistance at 1150 with the next resistance level now at 1170.  There are two changes to the model portfolios. In the rankings, it should be noted that Bond Funds are now rising to the top. This may be an early signal to a market trend change. Time will tell.


This week's Rankings have transitioned to bond funds at the top indicating a potential shift in market character. Ranking scores are color coded to indicate positive ranking scores (rate of change / volatility) in green, and negative ranking scores in red. Overall the list is sorted by overall rank but the score that makes up the rank can be positive or negative depending on the recent rate of change. The full list of the funds that are ranked can be found under the Funds tab. Current Rankings of the Funds can be found under the Rankings tab.
