Takeaway: I’m not buying-the-damn-bubble #BTDB today. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe not.

POSITION: 9 LONGS, 9 SHORTS @Hedgeye

The 3 main issues for the US stock market in our model are as follows:

  1. US consumption #GrowthSlowing (rate of change vs Q313’s sequential top)
  2. US stocks are down YTD (consensus chases performance)
  3. SPY just broke one of my immediate-term TRADE lines of momentum support (1837)

So, I’m not buying-the-damn-bubble #BTDB today. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe not.

Across our core risk management durations here are the lines that matter to me most:

  1. Immediate-term TRADE resistance = 1848
  2. Immediate-term TRADE support = 1821
  3. Intermediate-term TREND support = 1779

In other words, for the 1st time in months the SP500 is signaling A) lower-highs vs the all-time closing high and B) a very immediate-term TRADE momentum line breakdown with C) fundamentals (#GrowthSlowing) hanging out in the background.

Sure, there are plenty of reasons to buyem. Flows in particular are tantalizing. But a stock market that goes down on Down Dollar and Down Rates (today), is a stock market that is worried about something I haven’t had to worry about for a year now = #GrowthSlowing.

Keep moving out there,

KM
