State of the Market Address:

  • The Dow, and other indices, continue to surge higher.
  • Shiller's Adjusted S&P P/E ratio is now at 29.31. Arguably the second highest level in history (if we adjust for 2000 distortions) and right behind 1929 top at 29.55.
  • Weekly RSI at 79. At severely overbought levels. Daily RSI is at 81.55 - at severely overbought levels as well.
  • Prior years corrections terminated at around 200 day moving average. Located at around 17,200 today (on weekly).
  • Weekly stochastics at 98.78. Extremely overbought level associated with prior market peaks. Daily at 98.11 - at severly overbought levels as well.
  • VIX/VXX either at or approaching their historic lows. Commercial VIX long interest approaching record highs. Now at 120K contracts net long. 
  • Last week's CTO Reports suggest that commercials (smart money) are shifting their positioning to net short.  For instance, the Dow is 4X, the S&P is at 2X, Russell 2000 is at 4X and the Nasdaq is at 2.5X short. That is a significant short position against the market.

In summary: For the time being the market remains in a clear bull trend. Yet, a number of longer-term indicators suggest the market might experience a substantial correction ahead. The market remains at extreme valuation levels and severely overbought on both daily and weekly charts. Plus, the "smart money" is positioning for some sort of a sell-off.
