- Market survives the triumvirate of events, but GS 'air pocket' worries
skewer FAANG, big tech, chips.
- DJ30 cruises to a new high as does RUTX while NASDAQ, SOX are rocked.
- Rotation for sure on Friday, but will it last or will the big tech and
FAANG selling be, again, another short term selling event as all the others?
- Plenty of leaders into early 2017 are set up to lead again.

There were some big events hitting on the week, potentially market moving
events. Comey's testimony would expose Trump as a heavy handed justice
obstructionist. CNN had already reported same weeks ago. Didn't happen.
Indeed, some of those pushing the testimony came out in worse light than the
President. The ECB might upset things with its policy decision. The market
yawned. The UK election was worrisome in that May lost her majority, but
stocks were up Friday early on even in the wake of the UK vote.

None of those stalled the move. It took something else. Something of

Friday the FAANG, big techs, semiconductors, software, and the like turned
and bit the hand that buys them. Goldman issued a report suggesting the
FAANG hit a 'valuation air pocket' (not to be confused with the strangely
popular Hot Pocket). After FAANG accounted for roughly 55% of NASDAQ's move
this year, GS got nervous. With so many fund managers in a state of
constant petrification regarding stock values, all they needed was an excuse
to sell. It would appear that after several leading fund managers voiced
their concerns, GS was the final 'authority.' Stocks from NASDAQ and SOX
tumbled. Hard. The rest of the market? Nothing. Indeed, DJ30, SP400, and
RUTX scored gains while the market spilled tech blood.

SP500 -2.02, -0.08%
NASDAQ -113.84, -1.80%
DJ30 89.44, 0.42%
SP400 0.39%
RUTX 0.43%
SOX -4.23%
NASDAQ 100 -2.44%

VOLUME: NYSE +11%, NASDAQ +47%. Huge NASDAQ volume shows very aggressive
selling action.

A/D: NYSE 1.6:1, NASDAQ 1.03:1. Yes, NASDAQ breadth was positive on a day
it lost 1.8%. That is the definition of a narrow, large cap selloff. The
money came in and pushed them higher and higher, and Friday it fled the

Sharp declines for NASDAQ and SOX, but it was not a collapse. NASDAQ
recovered, as did all stocks, in the last 1.5 hours, holding the 20 day EMA
on the close. SOX did the same.

Of course DJ30 put in a new all-time high. SP400 rallied to a new high but
just could not quite hold a new closing high past the March peak. SP500
tapped the 20 day EMA on the low then rebounded to flat, holding its lateral
range for the week just over the 10 day EMA. It did put in a new high
intraday. RUTX did manage to hold a new all-time closing high. Two new
closing highs, new intraday highs on all the NYSE indices.

New highs on some indices as others are ripped open to the downside. No
doubt FAANG and tech stocks were dumped, but others were bought as they were
sold. Sure looks like rotation versus abandoning the market.

That make some sense if you are crediting the GS release with the move: dump
the 'air pocket' stocks and go with other areas. As seen with the plays
this weekend, there are a LOT of leadership plays that posted great moves
into the first of the year that have tested while FAANG and SOX ran higher.
They are in excellent position to make new moves higher and resume their

Just another hiccup?

There is also something else to consider: yes Friday resulted in sharp
losses for the FAANG and tech stocks and on strong volume. They were

But . . . this has occurred before. Recall the litany of technical
breakdowns I have chronicled just to see stocks reverse right back up. Even
on the Friday selling, in the last 1.5 hours NASDAQ and SOX recovered their
20 day EMA, moving nicely off the lows. AMZN reversed big after
undercutting its 50 day MA's. FB bounced off a 50 day EMA test; it fell to
the 50 day MA in mid-May in an ugly gap and drop, but it immediately
rebounded and moved to new highs yet again. AAPL managed to hold the 50 day
MA after undercutting it. NFLX bounced off the 50 day on its low.

Wow, could the plunge protection team be on the move again, driving these
indices and stocks back up and blunting the selloff?

These were not utter collapses, and that raises the question of whether
these stocks got it out of their system, cleared the pipes so to speak, and
can once again move higher. Unlike some of prior selloffs that recovered,
this one saw these stocks in pretty solid technical position. More reason
to watch for a possible short term upheaval that sees buying return.

So, if positions recovered decently enough we kept them, though with the
wild moves it was not the easiest task. Others we sold. If, however, it is
just a short-lived jerk lower, those that held support are in good position
to rebound as well.

Of course, at some point they won't recover. This was not, however, the
entire market, and if money rotates elsewhere you can see the market
continue its move with other groups moving into the lead. There are many
non-FAANG, non-tech stocks that rallied well into the first part of 2017
only to peak and then fade into bases while FAANG, tech, and chips led the
charge higher. Now they are set to move higher, and as money comes out of
those recently leading groups that many managers so feared, these stocks and
sectors could rise and return to leadership.

Thus, we have several of these plays on the report for this coming week.
Great patterns where bases have formed after runs to highs, ready to move
higher. As money comes out of the recent leaders, these are primed to move.
We will see if they get the money or if the money is yanked from the market
altogether. Not the case Friday when everyone was really spooked, so that
makes the rotation theory look a bit better.



Semis: The big movers were targets. NVDA gapped higher on another upgrade
then reversed. But it held the 10 day EMA. AVGO sold hard but landed on
the 20 day EMA. MU held the 20 day on the close. Same with SWKS, SLAB.
SIMO held the 10 day EMA. RTEC hard to the 10 day. NPTN down but held up
well; of course it has not surged as have the others. Not a total rout as
they held onto near support. That leaves them in position to rebound, IF
the buyers still want them, if, as it were, this was enough of an air

FAANG: FB sold to the 50 day EMA but bounced off it; that level has held as
support before. AAPL sold below the 50 day MA but did manage a rebound to
hold it. AMZN tumbled 80 points and undercut the 50 day MA only to rebound
to a 32 point loss. NFLX tested the 50 day MA and rebounded some. GOOG
undercut the 20 day EMA and could not quite recapture it on the rebound.
Down hard but did see some buyers off the lows in the last hour.

China: As leaders they were hit as well. NTES held the 10 day EMA on a 3%
drop. SOHU sold to the 20 day EMA. SINA continued its test, holding the 50
day EMA on the low. CTRP sold to the 20 day EMA. Here as with FAANG, the
selling was sharp, but there were some recoveries.

Financial: Seeing money their way. JPM, C, BAC, TCBI, KEY.

Metals: Not a great day but still some good patterns, e.g. AKS, SCHN, FCX,

Oil stocks: Some nice setups and moves. ATW continues improving. CVX is
surging up off the lows. HAL could be in a double bottom. JAG caught our
attention as a new issue.

Construction/Engineering: JEC breaking higher. MDR moving off a good
consolidation. Getting some money.

Manufacturing: DAKT in an interesting pattern. MTW very interesting.
HOLI. Some patterns that could yield good upside.

VXO: 10.39; +0.97

Put/Call Ratio (CBOE): 1.06; +0.36. A bit of fear returned to the market.

Bulls and Bears: The opposite effect? Bulls fell as the market rallied and
now the bulls rally back as the market sold. Okay, it was Friday selling
and that happened well after the survey. Bears fell right back down to
again close at 18.3.

Bulls: 55.8 versus 50.0

Bears: 18.3 versus 19.2

Theory: When everyone is bullish and has put all their capital to work,
where does the ammunition to drive the market come from? There is always
new money to start a new year. After that is used will more money be
coming? That is the question.

Bulls: 55.8 versus 50.00
50.00 versus 51.9 versus 58.1 versus 58.7 versus 58.5 versus 54.7 versus

versus 23.1 versus 23.8 versus 23.1 versus 22.8 versus 23.1 versus 24.3


Bonds: 2.21% versus 2.19%. Bonds faded again, but held over the 20 day EMA.
Still in a test of the break higher and still in an upside pattern.

Historical: the last sub-2% rate was in November 2016 (1.867%). 2.19%
versus 2.176% versus 2.14% versus 2.183% versus 2.154% versus 2.21% versus
2.20% 2.26% versus 2.255% versus 2.252% versus 2.287% versus 2.254% versus

2.322% versus 2.289% versus 2.322% versus 2.30% versus 2.31% versus 2.33%
versus 2.275% versus 2.236% versus 2.234% versus 2.21% versus 2.15% versus
2.248% versus 2.232% versus 2.264% versus 2.30% versus 2.36% versus 2.37%
versus 2.34% versus 2.33% versus 2.34% versus 2.33% versus 2.35% versus
2.40% versus 2.41% versus 2.382% versus 2.418% versus 2.376% versus 2.40%
versus 2.41% versus 2.40% versus 2.43% versus 2.463% versus 2.50% versus
2.529% versus 2.502% versus 2.602

EUR/USD: 1.11965 versus 1.11990. Nice doji at the 20 day EMA as the euro
maintains its uptrend.

Historical: 1.1199 versus 1.12491 versus 1.12798 versus 1.12684 versus
1.12811 versus 1.12181 versus 1.12547 versus 1.11768 versus 1.11810 versus
1.12148 versus 1.12240 versus 1.11868 versus 1.12390 versus 1.11916 versus

1.09328 versus 1.08655 versus 1.08671 versus 1.08843 versus 1.09286 versus
1.09994 versus 1.09086 versus 1.08923 versus 1.09284 versus 1.090984 versus
1.08987 versus 1.08691 versus 1.09093 versus 1.09358 versus 1.08449 versus
1.07255 versus 1.07255 versus 1.07188 versus 1.0717 versus 1.07304 versus
1.06431 versus 1.06138 versus 1.0671 versus 1.06068 versus 1.05984

USD/JPY: 110.334 versus 110.299. Rallied Wednesday to Friday, showing a
doji Friday at some resistance.

Historical: 110.299 versus 109.355 versus 110.038 versus 110.446 versus
111.595 versus 110.909 versus 111.086 versus 111.217 versus 111.828 versus
111.678 versus 111.835 versus 111.076 versus 111.534 versus 111.271 versus
111.584 versus 111.167 versus 112.414 versus 113.074 versus 113.749 versus
113.349 versus 113.759 versus 114.263 versus 113.771 versus 113.217 versus
112.683 versus 112.495 versus 112.782 versus 112.779 versus 111.793 versus
111.524 versus 111.197 versus 111. 177 versus 111.234 versus 109.704

Oil: 45.83, +0.19. Second doji at the May lows. Trying to make a rebound?

Gold: 1271.40, -8.10. Faded in a 1-2-3 drop off the high that matched the
April high. Key test now for the upside move for gold.


Friday was the start of some rotation. Will it be the end of it? With the
good patterns in manufacturing, construction, and other 'old economy' stocks
and sectors, it would not be surprising at all for those to continue seeing
money flow their way and break them higher.

If money is not leaving the market, it will seek other areas, and the likely
candidates are those that are under quiet accumulation during the ascent of
the FAANG et al. Many of those managers lamenting the surge in the narrow
leadership have likely put money into these other areas, hence the
accumulation patterns. We anticipate seeing them make breaks higher, and
the plays on the report this weekend reflect that.

Not that the recent leaders are out of the upside mix. As noted, many
managed to hold onto near support and as has been in the past, could bounce
right on up again. The plunge protection team was working hard the last
hour Friday and we will see if the managers try buying the big names again.
If not, will the PPT move back in?

Whether the PPT acts or not, if the recent leaders move back up, we have
some still in the portfolio, and we can always move into some more if they
hold and money just cannot resist them.

Interesting for certain, some good patterns in other sectors have built up
to breakouts, other areas are trying to turn up after a long time of
weakness. And there is FAANG and company. We will see where the money
goes, as it has not, as of yet, decided to totally leave the market.

Have a great weekend!
