Stocks Hover in Tight Range Amid Mixed Signals

Equity markets played a cautious dance on Tuesday, oscillating between gains and losses before closing with minimal fluctuations. The S&P 500 inched down by less than one-tenth of a percentage point, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average managed to eke out a slight gain of under one-tenth of a percent. Conversely, the Nasdaq Composite posted a modest decline of 0.3%.

In terms of market breadth, optimists clearly held the upper hand as winners outnumbered losers. However, the ongoing prevalence of new lows outstripping new highs casts a shadow of uncertainty over the week’s trajectory. Notably, the index trading activity on Monday and Tuesday remained confined within the range of the recent trading session.

As we scrutinize the market breadth through the lens of the red-light-green-light system, it assumes an intriguing posture, possibly poised to flash a green-light cross. This emergence follows a notable surge in the advancing to declining volume ratio.

Treasury yields marked another remarkable milestone on Tuesday, surging to levels not seen in over a decade. Another robust economic data release spurred this ascent, fanning concerns that interest rates may linger at elevated altitudes. The benchmark 10-year bond yield surged to 4.847%, a sharp uptick from 4.709% on Monday, securing its highest closing level since July 2007.

Despite the fluctuating strength in yields, major indexes remain in familiar trading ranges. Many of our watchlist stocks seem to be setting up favorably in consolidation and continuation patterns. A breakout above the 50-day moving average on the indexes would open the door to numerous buying opportunities in our setups. Conversely, if we witness a decline below the support lines we’ve been monitoring, it’s time to sound the alarm as concerns about the sustainability of the upward trend arise. As we look ahead, next week’s pivotal earnings reports loom on the horizon. It’s wise for investors to maintain patience and readiness, heeding the age-old wisdom of the Chartered Market Technician (CMT) – trust in price reactions, not predictions.

Keeping an eye on the cryptocurrency frontier, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) faced a setback as it failed to appeal the Grayscale lawsuit ruling. This development has set a ticking clock, granting the court seven calendar days from the previous Friday to issue its final mandate. The mandate holds the potential to instruct the SEC to greenlight the conversion of GBTC into a Bitcoin spot exchange-traded fund (ETF). The approval of the first spot ETF could potentially trigger a domino effect, compelling the consideration of other pending applications. A breakout from the basing pattern on the Bitcoin chart would be regarded as bullish, signaling the continuation of the upward trend initiated from the 2023 low.

Continue building those watchlists and closely monitor the best setups that exhibit relative strength. The adage holds true – the best charts often offer breakout signals before the indexes deliver a clear directive. Additionally, maintaining awareness of impending earnings dates is crucial, as there’s always a gap risk associated with holding a stock through these announcements.

As we venture into our daily setups, it’s vital to remember the enduring wisdom of John Maynard Keynes: ‘Markets can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent.’
