The stock market is still bullish despite February’s pullback. What I wrote in last month’s newsletter still applies:
“the market is displaying strength that we have not seen in over a year. Here is a rundown of the positive developments that have occurred recently:
- Market breadth continues to strengthen.
- Sentiment has shifted to a decidedly risk-on environment.
- The S&P 500 has advanced above both its downtrend line and 200-day moving average.
- The S&P 500 is now in a structural uptrend.”
Below is a chart of the S&P 500. Price action is still positive in that the index is still in a structural uptrend, and is above both its uptrend line and 200-day moving average.
The market is still bullish despite February’s short-term pullback.
Client Account Update
Our conservative model is close to being fully invested.
Our aggressive model is fully invested; however, there is room to increase our equity exposure using margin and/or freeing up cash by rotating out of our bond holdings.
