The Markets

Stocks closed essentially unchanged on Monday following the release of weak European manufacturing data.  The S&P 500 Index traded on either side of the flatline throughout the session, finally ending the day lower by a mere basis point.  The rising 20-day moving average appears poised to connect with price and reaction to the short-term hurdle will be critical.  The benchmark broke above its 20-day moving average at the end of August, putting the variable hurdle into a position of support.  Confirmation of support would, inevitably, keep the short-term rising trend intact, giving the benchmark another shot at resistance presented by the all-time high around 3025.

The S&P 500 Index is not the only area where reaction to 20-day moving average will be scrutinized.  Bond prices took a shot at the short-term hurdle on Monday, showing gains while stocks showed losses, then reversing through the afternoon session.  For the long-term treasury bond ETF (TLT), the widely traded fixed income fund pulled back as soon at the hurdle was hit, closing marginally lower on the day.  Momentum indicators for the fixed income ETF had been showing characteristics of a bullish trend since the end of last year, but the recent pullback from a parabolic pace through the month of August has put into question the sustainability of the bullish pace.  MACD is at the lowest level since last November, holding below the zero line.  A failure for the fixed income ETF to chart a new high would provide fairly conclusive evidence that the trend of higher-highs and higher-lows has concluded and an intermediate move lower is underway.  This rotation of funds from fixed income could provide a catalyst for stocks.  Seasonally, treasury bonds tend to peak, on average, in the month of September.
