It’s a bounceback Monday for the markets to kick off the week as news regarding China’s COVID restrictions and the country’s crackdown on the tech sector may be easing. Nasdaq futures are leading the charge higher, but the S&P 500 is also indicated to open up by over 1%. Oil is modestly higher, although off its earlier highs, Treasury yields are slightly higher, and crypto is sharply higher.
In today’s Morning Lineup, we discuss weekend developments in the Russia-Ukraine war (pg 4), the upcoming UK no-confidence vote (pg 4), and economic data out of China and the rally in that country’s tech sector (pg 5).
The week is starting off on a positive note for equities, but remember that today’s levels at the open still won’t be enough to erase last Friday’s declines. Additionally, all of the major averages are still trading below their 50 and 200-day moving averages, and they remain mired in pretty well-defined downtrends with a series of lower highs and lows. The only one of the three indices listed below that has broken its short-term downtrend is the Nasdaq 100, but it’s also seen the steepest declines. As we head into the new week, the Russell 2000 is down in six of the last seven weeks, and the Nasdaq 100 and S&P 500 are down in eight of the last nine weeks.
As far as individual sectors are concerned, it remains a case of Energy (XLE) and everybody else as the former is the only sector in overbought territory. The only other sectors even above their 50-DMAs at this point are Materials (XLB) and Utilities (XLU). If there’s any silver lining at this point, it’s that while most sectors remain below their 50-DMAs, only one (Consumer Staples, XLP) is actually at oversold levels.
