“If I had nine hours to chop down a tree, I would spend the first six sharpening my ax.” – Abraham Lincoln
Just as Monday was the worst trading day of last week, it’s not shaping up to be much of a good day for the bulls this week either. There’s still plenty of time left in the day, but it’s not getting off to a strong start. In terms of potential catalysts for the market today, there’s little in the way of economic or earnings data, so the focus will likely be on Washington DC and what will transpire in the final days of the President’s term.

While the US equity market collectively is overbought, there’s quite a bit of dispersion among individual sectors heading into the second full week of the year. As shown in the snapshot from our Trend Analyzer, Consumer Discretionary, Health Care, and Materials sectors are all at ‘extreme overbought’ levels and have ‘poor’ timing scores. Beneath those three sectors, four more are overbought, while four are still at neutral levels. Of those four sectors (Industrials, Consumer Staples, Utilities, and Real Estate), the first two also currently have ‘good’ timing scores.
