Why the Stock Market Is So Confusing Right Now

  • The QQQ gets back above its 50-day moving average.



  • The IWM gets above its 50-day moving average or at the least continues to rally.

  • An increase in the number of S&P 500 components making 20-day highs.



  • Downside follow-through of the Utilities Select Sector ETF  (XLU) vs. the Consumer Discretionary Select Sector ETF (XLY) sector.


  • And lastly, signs of accumulation through price and volume acceleration. 

Absent such developments, I will continue to view the market with a more defensive approach. The level to watch on the S&P 500 on the upside is the all-time high at 1897. On the downside, key levels to watch are 1872, 1850, 1834 and 1814.
