S&P 500 Quick-View Chart Book — 11/17/17

Each weekend as part of our Bespoke Premium and Institutional research service, clients receive our S&P 500 Quick-View Chart Book, which includes one-year price charts of every stock in the S&P 500.  You can literally scan through this report in a matter of minutes or hours, but either way, you will come out ahead knowing which stocks, or groups of stocks, are leading and lagging the market.  The report is a great resource for both traders and investors alike.  Below we show the front page of this week’s report which contains price charts of the major averages and ten major sectors.

As seen in the charts below, the only major average that didn’t hit an all-time high this week was the Russell 2000, but it remains right near its highs with only a small pullback.  In terms of individual sectors, we saw new highs from Consumer Discretionary, Financials, and Technology, while Telecom Services (a sector with just three stocks) made a new low.

Make sure to check out our entire S&P 500 Chart Book by signing up for a 14-day free trial to our Bespoke Premium research service.

Bullish Sentiment Crashes

It looks like all of the negative talk from some high profile investors in recent days has made its way into the heads of individual investors, causing them to turn increasingly bearish on equities.  According to this week’s sentiment survey from AAII, bullish sentiment crashed from 45.1% down to 29.35%.  That’s the largest one-week decline since April 2013!  With bullish sentiment now sporting a 20-handle, it’s also safe to say that the streak of sub 50% readings that has been in place for 150 straight weeks now won’t be broken anytime soon.

Bearish sentiment, meanwhile, didn’t see quite as big a move as bullish sentiment, but it did spike by 12 percentage points, and that’s the largest one-week increase since February 2016.

Bespoke’s FAANG+ Trading Range Screen

Even with the market in pullback mode over the last week, the five largest Nasdaq 100 stocks remain just barely in overbought territory as shown in our trading range screen below.  There’s plenty of downside room for these “five horsemen” to drop before they get anywhere near oversold territory…

Bespoke’s Country Trading Range Screen: Trending Towards Oversold

Last week at this time, 16 of the 30 country ETFs in our trading range screen shown below were in overbought territory.  After a week of declines, there are now just 5 countries still in overbought territory, while 12 are oversold.  In our screen, the dot shows where the ETF is currently trading relative to its normal range (the black vertical “N” line represents each ETF’s 50-day moving average), while the tail end shows where it was trading one week ago.

As shown, Brazil (EWZ), Indonesia (IDX), Italy (EWI), Russia (RSX), Sweden (EWD), and the UK (EWU) are some of the countries that have gotten hit the hardest over the last week.  Note that the US (SPY) has now moved out of overbought territory as well, but it remains above its 50-day moving average.

After the action we’ve seen over the last few months where pretty much everything was trading higher across the globe in lockstep, we’ve now got confirmation that yes…stocks can indeed still go down.
