All Day Rallies A Thing of the Past

It seems like a distant memory now, but Monday’s rally marked just the 13th time all year (and over the last 100 trading days) that the S&P 500 tracking ETF (SPY) opened higher and traded in positive territory all day (‘100% positive day’).  The chart below shows the rolling 100-trading day total number of 100% positive days for SPY since 1994, shortly after the ETF launched.  The current level of 13 is already well below the long-term average of 18, but last week, the reading was even lower at 12.  The last time the 100-day rolling total was lower than that was in May 2009, and the lowest readings ever recorded were in periods beginning in October 2002 and September 2008 with just six in a 100-trading day span.

What makes the current period unique is how quickly the rate of 100% positive days has plummeted.  100 trading days ago, the rolling total was more than twice the current level at 29.  Also, it was only in February 2021 (less than sixteen months ago) that the number of 100% positive days reached a record high of 33 on 2/4/21.  That peak came just weeks before the Federal Government sent out the third and final round of stimulus checks.  Just as massive amounts of fiscal and monetary stimulus helped to support markets during COVID, the withdrawal of these supports has introduced gravity back into the equation.  Click here to learn more about Bespoke’s premium stock market research service.

Morning stock market summary

Below is a snippet of content from today’s Morning Lineup for Bespoke Premium members.  Start a two-week trial to Bespoke Premium now to access the full report.

That rally lasted long.  After bouncing from the last hour on Friday through yesterday, US stocks are set to open down by over 1% this morning following Snap’s (SNAP) earnings warning and its comments regarding the weakening broader macroeconomic environment.  Adding to the concerns regarding the economy, preliminary PMI readings out of Europe also came in lower than expected.  The US versions of these reports will be released later this morning.  Given these growth concerns, treasuries are rallying as the 10-year yield drops back down to 2.82%.  Oil prices, however, are largely unchanged on the day.

In today’s Morning Lineup, we recap on the latest declines in the tech sector (pg 4), Asian and European markets (pg 4), COVID case numbers (pg 5), the latest economic data out of Asia and Europe (pg 5), and a lot more.

After a 1.87% gain for the S&P 500 (SPY) yesterday, we’re seeing the inverse of a “Turnaround Tuesday” this morning with SPY set to open lower by just over 1%.  Since 1993 when SPY began trading, there have only been five prior instances in which SPY rose 1%+ on a Monday and then gapped lower by more than 1% the next morning.  As shown below, SPY continued lower from the open to the close on four of the five prior Tuesdays, and one week from the Tuesday open, SPY was down all five times for an average decline of 2.3%. One step forward, two steps back.
