Honey for Bears

The Dow opened about 200 points down and then trickled lower; at one point down more than 300 points. The S&P 500 index broke down through the key level of support at 1860 that I warned you about in January and again last week, taking out the August 2015 lows and the October 2014 lows. The S&P 500 not only took out support from January, but now we look to minor support at 1815, and then, well there isn’t really any support. In other words, the charts look very dangerous here.   And if you prefer fundamentals over technicals; this is what FactSet had to say in its recent report: “For Q4 2015, the blended earnings decline is -3.8%. If the index reports a decline in earnings for Q4, it will mark the first time the index has seen three consecutive quarters of year-over-year declines in earnings since Q1 2009 through Q3 2009.” The difference this time versus 2009 is that valuations are much higher. FactSet data show expectations for first-quarter per-share earnings have collapsed to a decline of 5.5% as of today. Back in September, that forecast …

While a 295 point drop, or 1.8%, in the Dow will attract some headlines, we also saw a less flashy move in bonds, with the yield on 10-year Treasuries drop 10 basis points, to 1.86% – that’s a 5.2% drop. After hitting resistance levels from October, yields continued dropping to lows last seen in April.   Stocks moved lower again, following the trail of oil prices, which dropped 5.5% today to close below $30 a barrel. Not a big surprise because the trend has been lower, and a trend in place is more likely to continue than it is to reverse. We are definitely in a downtrend. The S&P 500 is now right at 10% below its May record, which means correction territory, not a  bear market, although many stocks in the S&P are in bear market territory –  specifically the energy stocks.  The rally last week looks like not much more than end-of-month reshuffling, which happened at the same time the Bank of Japan surprised the markets with negative interest rates, but the BOJ can’t announce negative interest rates every day.   Right now, any rally …
