A top of the market may come here in the short term.

In the meantime, the first Federal Reserve meeting later this month could turn into a slumber festival if you read the tea leaves of Fed member comments in January. As announced in 2019, the Fed is likely to remain data-dependent – and this suggests that there will be no rate hikes or rate cuts for the time being.

That said, let the screams on Wall Street begin after a retreat in the glowing stock markets when investors return disappointed with their search.

<p class = "Canvas-Atom Canvas-Text Mb (1.0em) Mb (0) – sm Mt (0.8em) – sm" type = "text" content = "" We have been gone for over a year now without this a normal development for the markets, ”said Scott Clemons, Brown Brothers Harriman's chief investment strategist at Yahoo Finance The first trade, “We informed our customers that there will inevitably be a 5 percent or 10 percent payback loss later this year because things are overbought here in the United States, at least.” “Data-reactid =” 19 “>” We have now gone This is a normal development for the markets, “said Scott Clemons, chief investment strategist at Brown Brothers Harriman, in The First Trade of Yahoo Finance will inevitably be the 5% or 10% repayment later this year because things are overbought here in the US, at least. “

Calling overbought stocks can be an understatement.

According to Sundial Capital Research, more than 85% of S&P 500 stocks are now above their 200-day moving average, the highest in five years. Within the Nasdaq 100, an average of 22% of stocks hit the news and are overbought with a relative strength index above 70. When this momentum started in 2001, Sundial noticed that the Nasdaq 100 would tend to underperform in the coming weeks.

And one last sweetener for the Permabulls from the Sundial people. There is a 15-year high for stocks with negative earnings, both for established companies and for new issues. This suggests that investors are just chasing momentum and may be negatively surprised if new data represent a different story.
