Market Correction Intensifies as Yields Soar

This Tuesday, the stock market correction deepened its grip on the major indexes, erasing any vestiges of Monday’s modest gains. Meanwhile, the 10-year Treasury yield continued its ascent, scaling long-term heights. The Dow Jones Industrial Average led the retreat, marking a decline of 1.1%, while the S&P 500 index mirrored the downturn with a 1.5% fall, inching closer to its pivotal 200-day moving average. Not to be outdone, the Nasdaq Composite tumbled by 1.6%.


In the midst of this turbulence, the 10-year Treasury yield surged by 2 basis points to reach 4.56%, a level not witnessed since October 2007. The prevailing narrative remains unchanged: a stronger dollar and rising rates are the prevailing themes of our market landscape. Elevated yields translate directly into increased borrowing costs for both businesses and consumers, leaving investors wary about the sustainability of the ongoing economic expansion. Furthermore, the robust dollar threatens companies heavily reliant on overseas revenue streams.

Remarkably, this uptrend in yields does not reflect the Federal Reserve’s actions. Shorter-term yields have been relatively flat in recent days, with the odds of another Fed rate hike diminishing. It is the longer-term outlook that appears to be reshaping market sentiment. Technology stocks, often valued for their anticipated future earnings, find themselves particularly exposed, as these profits tend to lose their luster when compared to the improved risk-free returns offered by government bonds maturing over time.

Tech Heavy Nasdaq 100 Index

Amidst the volatility, the energy sector managed to hold its ground, slipping a mere 0.5%. Yet, this resilience is not without its concerns, as it parallels yet another surge in oil prices that has kept investors on their toes.

Navigating the Precious Metal Charts

The luster of precious metal charts has dimmed as the 100-day moving average rejects a potentially promising sector theme. I often receive inquiries from readers about front-running chart setups. Here’s a prime example of the risks associated with front-running a technical signal.

To this day, I remember the valuable lesson my mentor taught me: “Not yet,” he would say, emphasizing the significance of the 100-day moving average. This moving average holds a pivotal role as it represents the 20-week moving average on the weekly chart, effectively serving as the middle Bollinger band. Frequently, this moving average acts as both a support and resistance level.

As we examine the chart before us, we can clearly observe how this moving average acts as a ceiling, capping price action and thwarting any attempts to break through. This brings us back to viewing stocks as a binary event akin to a red-light-green-light scenario. Despite the potential signs of momentum brewing in the charts, they never quite provide that signal.

Adding the 100-day moving average alongside the 20-week moving average to your charts can serve as a valuable tool in making binary decisions.


Reading the Market Signals: What to Look Out for

In these turbulent times, keeping an eye on a few key factors is essential. First, many indicators suggest that the stock market is currently oversold. This could mean we might see a short-term rebound in the near future. However, we’ll need to see a change in the direction of Treasury yields for a more substantial recovery. Whether they start going down or at least stabilize for a while, that’s what we’re looking for.

So, here’s the name of the game: patience. Investors should be cautious and look for consistent signs of market strength over several days. Pay special attention to stocks that have shown strength during recent market chaos; they could be the ones leading the next market rally. As you keep a close watch, make sure your watchlists are up-to-date, and be ready for both upward and downward movements in the days ahead.
