SYS Daily Report

Sometimes, wisdom lies in adopting a ‘sit and observe’ stance, and today, it serves as a perfect illustration of this principle. As I emphasized in previous newsletters, my market philosophy hinges on ‘expecting the expected.’ Today’s market volatility only reinforces the significance of this approach. It reminds us that knowing when to act and when to observe is a vital skill in navigating the ever-changing landscape of market volatility.

As I’ve explained in previous newsletters, I approach the market with the mindset of expecting the expected. Once one understands the range of probable outcomes, one can formulate a plan that is not influenced by the opinions and biases of others or external noise. Since the first Setyourstop report, I’ve highlighted the horizontal resistance line on the major indexes. This simple, horizontal resistance line allows one to anticipate a range of expected outcomes, simplifying it to a binary event. That line will act as resistance until the moment it doesn’t. So far, this expected outcome has proven valid as the market failed at the underside of that resistance line and continued to pull back over the last two days, driven by rising yields and the US dollar.

$SPX – S&P 500 Large Cap Index

I want to monitor how the price interacts with the moving averages closely. As evident from the chart, historically, these moving averages have played a significant role as support and resistance lines when momentum is in play.

When the price consistently remains above the moving averages during an uptrend, it tends to signal a certain expected outcome as they act as support. Conversely, in a downtrend, they function as resistance until that pivotal moment when they don’t. This dynamic creates a clear red or green light scenario.

Such an approach allows for the development of a well-defined risk management plan, aligning with the principles of the CMT (Chartered Market Technician), a discipline that emphasizes reacting to price action over making predictions.

At this stage, I understand that many of my colleagues have a penchant for making predictions, attempting to call market tops and predict the next significant crash. However, the reality is that nobody possesses the ability to foresee precisely what will unfold in the market, and I choose to steer clear of such predictions. To me, they are no different from attempting to predict the weather. Occasionally, they may prove accurate, and when they do, they tend to bask in the limelight. But when they miss the mark, their earlier predictions often go unacknowledged.

Calling a market top is an exceptionally challenging endeavor because, in reality, there can only be one true top. Most of the time, prices continue to trend or move sideways. We have ample evidence of this, as I’ve observed more people attempting to predict a top throughout this entire uptrend compared to those actively participating in it. The truth is, many were attempting to call a top even before the uptrend had initiated.

This phenomenon is indeed prevalent. The historical precedent of September has already introduced bias, whether justifiable or not. Genuine skill lies in acknowledging this historical context, exercising caution, and remaining prepared to react if the expected outcome deviates. The essence is to stay focused and shield oneself from external biases and distractions.

This is precisely where the importance of monitoring the strongest stocks with the most promising setups comes into play. It enables one to keep high-probability setups within their sights. This approach safeguards against hasty decisions influenced by the opinions of others, which, historically, have seldom proven accurate. When the market turns, one will be ready to act.

$TNX – CBOE 10-Year US Treasury Yield

With all that said, it has become imperative to maintain a watchful eye on the movements in the bond market and the 10-year Treasury. The stock market experienced a noticeable downturn following the release of robust economic data. The ISM services index for August impressively exceeded expectations, boasting a reading of 54.5, well ahead of the anticipated 52.4 and a notable increase from July’s 52.7. The immediate consequence of this positive economic news was a less-than-rosy reaction from bond investors. A wave of selling engulfed long-dated U.S. Treasury bonds, causing the yield on the benchmark 10-year note to surge, reaching as high as 4.30% before settling at 4.29%, marking a 2-basis point increase. Notably, the third quarter has seen the 10-year yield rise by as much as 55 basis points. As alluded to in yesterday’s report, an impending breakout from this chart could have significant implications across various asset classes and continue to put downside pressure on stocks.

The TNX, also known as the 10-Year Treasury Yield, is a key benchmark interest rate used in the financial markets. It represents the yield on the U.S. government’s 10-year Treasury note. Investors often monitor the TNX because it provides insights into the broader economic conditions and can influence various financial markets, including stocks. When the TNX rises, it can put downward pressure on stock prices as higher yields on bonds become more attractive relative to stocks. Conversely, when the TNX falls, it can have the opposite effect, potentially boosting stock prices. It’s an important indicator for investors and economists to gauge market sentiment and economic expectations. The TNX chart you’re referring to may not directly display the percentage number. As an example, when you see 42.90 on this chart, it represents a yield of 4.29%.
