MTI: Momentum Smacked Again

  • Aug 14, 2019

The hits to the Momentum category were broad-based; the Advance/Decline work continues to disguise a very dangerous, underlying bifurcation of the market.

MTI: Momentum Takes A Hit

  • Aug 6, 2019

The Momentum category lost ground in the latest calculation, with more than three-quarters of the loss reflecting a flip in one of our “long-term” momentum sub-models from 50% bullish in the prior week, to maximum bearish at Friday’s close.

MTI: Economic Factors Lifted By Monetary Measures

  • Jul 30, 2019

Growth in M1 and M2 money supply has picked up, offsetting the bearish readings for Adjusted Reserves and the Fed balance sheet. Momentum category also strengthened.

MTI: Momentum Improved Despite Modest Market Losses

  • Jul 23, 2019

The Momentum category improved despite last week’s modest market losses, with some of the longer-term trend work improving. Daily and weekly 52-week lows for the NASDAQ remain elevated, reflecting the increasing concentration of strength in Technology stocks.

MTI: Upside Surprises/Depressed Expectations

  • Jul 16, 2019

Jul 09 2019

MTI: Attitudinal Measures Erode On Investor Enthusiasm

  • Jul 9, 2019

The Momentum category continues to grind higher, but this push has predictably stirred up investor enthusiasm (as measured this week by an identical decline in our Attitudinal composite). At the same time, longer-term measures like CEO Confidence, Small Business Optimism, and Consumer Confidence have all weakened in the latest reports, suggesting a rollover in animal spirits could be underway.
