The Three Scenarios March 7, 2020

March 6, 2020 – Another volatile week in the world markets.  But the question is always, “What Next?”  Right now there are 3 scenarios / possibilities.

1) Could we just rally from here go back up?  Sure, but not likely.  There has been a lot of damage done; a lot of money has been pulled out of the markets.  Just look at the volume on down bars.  2) Could we fall down even further?  Again, that’s possible and it all depends on news and the revenue streams coming into companies.  Thus, a time to be extra careful and watching price and volume.

3) Could we just remain in a trading range going back and forth with blips in the headlines?  In my opinion that’s the most likely direction; bouncing between 9070 at the top end and 8438 at the low end.

It looks like the markets are building a base / in consolidation.  But then again . .  it all depends on how badly business are feeling the virus effects on their revenue stream.  The virus scare impacts both supply of goods (manufacturing) and demand (will consumers buy?).  The virus effects on people is terrible and unfortunate, but one thing is fairly certain: the markets will recover.  The only question is when.  I’m watching for the results on consumer confidence & company revenue guidance for clues.  If there is a close below 8264, then more downside is likely.

The pie charts below tell the story of how the sell off has effected the stocks in the broad S&P 1500 index.

BTW, what stocks were considered “Strong” in the S&P 1500 Index?  Only six.  Those six below –

The table below paints a lot of red as far as short term sector strength is concerned:

I am heavy in Cash with the remaining mutual fund holding completely hedged.  Have a good week and try to be patient.  Likely this is not going to get resolved soon or quickly.   …  Tom  …
