On Wednesday, markets opened on a positive note as investors awaited the latest Fed decision.
- At 2 PM, the Fed did as expected and kept rates unchanged at 5.25-5.5%
- As Powell addressed reporters, the market dropped
Headlines blamed the selling on the Fed’s latest “Dot Plot.”
- The plot suggested another hike is likely this year
- And deep rate cuts are unlikely next year
The indexes settled notably red and at their session lows…
- Dow Jones -0.2%
- Nasdaq -1.5%
- S&P 500 -0.9%
- Russell 2000 -0.9%
Sector Round Up
Despite the selling, 4 of the 11 sectors posted gains.
At the top…
- Real Estate (XLRE) +0.2%
- Consumer Stpales (XLP) +0.1%
At the bottom…
- Materials (XLB) -1.1%
- Communications (XLC) -1.4%
- Technology (XLK) -1.6%
Markets are looking more and more oversold.
The S&P 500 is nearing oversold conditions this morning…
History tells us that oversold conditions are never maintained. And strong rallies often follow.
Your latest readout…
- The VIX remains below 16, bullish
- RSI levels are all neutral but nearing oversold
- The put-to-call ratio is oversold
Markets are setting up perfectly for their traditional autumn bottom.
Fall is traditionally a weak time for stocks.
October has a long history of creating market bottoms and killing bear markets.
We’ll look to establish our seasonal swing positions in the coming weeks. Ideally, markets will reach extreme oversold conditions for us to buy into.
For now, we wait.
