Takeaway: Given US #InflationAccelerating and consumption #GrowthSlowing, I am not convinced my @Hedgeye TREND support of 1785 holds.

POSITION: 4 LONGS, 9 SHORTS @Hedgeye

While being short into the tail-end of a market v-bottoming off the YTD lows was painful yesterday, that doesn’t mean our bearish call on consumption growth ends. If you want to be long, buy commodity inflation and/or slow-growth (bonds) assets.

That’s what’s working.

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

  1. Immediate-term TRADE overbought = 1837
  2. Intermediate-term TREND = 1785
  3. Immediate-term TRADE support = 1729

In other words, SPX is making lower-highs on lower-volume signals than we are seeing on the down days (Top 5 Volume Days of 2014 were all down days).

Given US #InflationAccelerating and consumption #GrowthSlowing, I am not convinced my @Hedgeye TREND support of 1785 holds. This is materializing into a very different setup vs. what our process signaled in 2013.

If they snap 1785 again, there’s no support to 1729. On a move like that, risk will most likely happen fast.
