Weekly Technical Scoop from David Chapman and www.EnrichedInvesing.com for May 9th

https://enrichedinvesting.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/Bear-similarities-economy-ok-jobs-good-inflation-lingers-stocks-down-energy-up-golds-struggle.pdf

Weakness in North American equity markets continued last week. Focus was more on the U.S. Federal Reserve’s plan to tighten monetary policy than reporting of better than consensus first quarter results. In addition, analysts became more cautious about consensus earnings estimates for the remainder of the year. Earnings growth in the second quarter is expected to be robust, but at a lower growth rate than the first quarter.

 

Observations

Volatility in U.S. equity markets remains elevated.

    Hi everyone,

    Was reading the comments from last friday.
    Here is what i’m seeing from the market

    Everyone is jumping overboard with all this bad news. They are crying their unrealized gain.

    SPX is down 14% from its high since october 1st down 9%
    TSX is down 10% from its high since october 1st down 1%
    Nasdaq is down 50% from its high.since october 1st down 20%

    I was looking at the M-x Exchange to see if there was anything peculiar not at first site.the XIU (tsx) is the most the most saught out option no wonder

    with 125000 options traded this is what we see peeps are trading may 20th puts what are they trading 30.75, 31, 31.50 and 33$ as all the put option are increasing in value but here is the funny part 29$ the last put option price is lower so I would guess people maybe drawing a line in the sand.

    Only time will tell.
