Russell 2000 Approaches 200-day MA; S&P Breaks 200-day MA
about 9 hours ago by Declan Fallon @ Fallond Picks

It was another day bulls chalked up a victory and indices posted gains across the board. Some indices did better than others but there is no clear weakness to work off yet.The S&P was able to break past its 200-day MA on higher volume accumulation. However, it's coming up against declining resistance. The MACD has already cleared comparable resistance with new highs which would suggest the S&P will be able to do likewise. Other technicals are in good shape and only relative performance (vs the Russell 2000) is underperforming.<img border="0" data-original-height="800" data-original-width="620" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-TKPTXxQjzwg/XGnNuY2v3WI/AAAAAAAArdA/m6GghG0IPDcUFGtEx2RDick77-LZ8pMZwCLcBGAs/s16...

Is A 2019 Stock Market Crash Coming? Is The Bear Market Here?
about 20 hours ago by Fallible Financial Entertainment @ Fallible YouTube Channel

Get rid of your trading FOMO with our free guide: https://macro-ops.com/fomo/ In this video we’ll review whether a stock market crash is coming and whether the bear market is here. The latest BofAML Fund Manager Survey is out and provides an interesting look into just pessimistic asset managers remain. The most important takeaways in my opinion are the strong overweighting to cash and now crowded positioning in emerging markets. The allocation to cash is now at its highest level since Jan 09’. I keep saying this but again this is not how long-term market tops are formed. For a significant bear market and/or market crash you need to have excessive risk taking and over-positioning (ie, use of leverage) leading to investors getting over their skis. According to BoFAML, the US saw record equity outflows over the past 3-months totalling $82bn, equivalent to 2% of AUM. This is consistent with “US equity bearishness at ‘events’ & ‘big lows’ of past decade”. That capital has rotated...
