      Chart: S&P 500 Could Fall 11% on Inflation Scare

      1st Rally: The S&P 500 rallied 20.16% from October 2022 to February 2023, and subsequently retraced to the 50% Fibonacci level. 2nd Rally: The S&P 500 rallied 20.96% from March 2022 to July 2023, and subsequently retraced to the 61.8% Fibonacci level. 3rd Rally: We may have seen the peak of the 3rd rally when the S&P 500 rallied 23% from October 2023 to February 2024. If history repeats itself, we may see the S&P 500 retracing to the 50% or 61.8% Fibonacci level, at 4,576 or 4,464 respectively.   There may be a short-term correction of up to 11% based on technical analysis. Fundamentally, renewed concerns about inflation and delays in rate cuts may have put an end to the market rally. Additionally, the S&P 500 tends to experience a sell-off in February to March bas

Can we see another week of record breaking streak in an uncertain February, a month that has been considered the second worst performing month in a year? 🤔 The U.S. stock market, as measured by the S&P 500 Index SPX, stumbled into the end of January. On the positive side, since January registered a gain, that is a longer-term positive under the "January Barometer" philosophy (as goes January, so goes the year). On the other hand, this market is in need of a rest, especially from the positive earnings from META and MSFT (M&M) late last week. There could be some legs left to run but be aware that February has been a down month in many years - sometimes very harshly as indicated: Pullback is im

      Why is still March FOMC Starting Rate Cuts?

      The January FOMC meeting of the Federal Reserve maintained the benchmark interest rate, as expected. Powell's wording indicated that almost all committee members believe that a rate cut is appropriate this year, but they do not see a rate cut in March as likely. The decision to cut rates depends on the economic situation. The implication is that the Fed does not want to raise market expectations too soon, so it actively dampened expectations for a rate cut in March. However, there is a wide range of views within the Fed's committee on the rate cut.Previously, the market implied a 50% probability of a rate cut in March and six rate cuts throughout the year. After the meeting, the implied probability of a rate cut in March decreased to 35%.Rate cut no longer a bullish factor?Looking ahead, e
