What are the Equity Market’s Warning Signs?

Nearly every member of Mish’s Modern Family improved last week, with the Russell 2000 (IWM), Transportation (IYT), Semiconductors (SMH), and Retail (XRT) all putting in Golden Crosses on their daily charts. 

Except for Regional Banks (KRE).

Risk off or on during this data heavy week? Clearly, the performance of MarketGauge’s Trend Strength Indicator (TSI) improving across all 4 key indices, with Small Caps (IWM) and the Dow (DIA) leading the bunch points to risk on. However, some areas should keep investors on their toes.

The 52-week New High / New Low ratio for the Nasdaq Composite has actually begun to deteriorate, a clear Risk-Off indication for the short term. And, despite the improvement in the market, the Yield Curve has actually continued to invert further.

KRE has not had a golden cross (the 50 daily moving average clears above the 200-DMA). It sits atop the 50-DMA, true. Nonetheless, looking out a wee bit at the weekly chart, KRE has yet to clear resistance and way underperforms the rest of the family. We have seen this before. KRE’s momentum, according to our Real Motion Indicator shows a bullish cross from last November. Yet the price has done nothing but decline in momentum since the since then.

Another member of the Economic Modern Family, Transportation, is also flashing a warning on the weekly chart.

Note that IYT has failed to clear the 50-week moving average (blue line). Also note the slope on the 50-WMA is negative.

IYT is beginning to underperform the SPY and momentum, according to Real Motion is slipping lower. Also interesting to observe is that the momentum moving averages had a death cross in early November.

Transportation and Regional Banks make up nearly 1/3 of the Economic Modern Family.

Of course, the week is young, so we have time to see if both sectors play catch up or are sending us a meaningful warning message. Either way, they are not to be ignored.
