The Markets

Stocks drifted lower on Monday as investors took some chips off the table given the uncertainties that remain through the rest of the week.  The S&P 500 Index shed nearly one-third of one percent, pulling back from resistance around 3150.  The FOMC Meeting Announcement on Wednesday, the UK General Election on Thursday, and the US tariff deadline on Sunday are critical market moving events ahead, keeping both the bulls and the bears on their toes.  MACD remains on a sell signal for S&P 500 Index, Dow Jones Industrial Average, and Nasdaq Composite; support for each remains apparent around 20 and 50-day moving averages.  While we have been highlighting intermediate trend channel resistance for some time, the upper hurdle, around 3150, could mean everything or could be northing, depending on the outcome of the events ahead.

An interesting battle is playing out in the commodity market that could indicate whether investors should bet “risk-on” (cyclical) or “risk-off” (defensive) within the equity market.  The copper/gold ratio has been trading in a tight band for the past decade, showing no definitive reason to hold one over the other amidst quantitative easing programs, subdued inflation, and general uncertainties.  A break above the upper limit of the range would suggest positive things for risk assets as investors bet on the continuation of the expansionary economic cycle, while a breakdown would be indicative of risk aversion, potentially leading to an equity market peak.  The ratio recently bounced from the lower limit of its range, keeping the neutral trend alive, but the outperformance of gold relative to copper this year speaks to the risk-aversion trade that flourished this past summer.  Seasonally, copper tends to outperform gold between now and the end of April, resulting in a risk-on trend for equity prices.  We’ll continue monitoring this ratio in the weeks/months ahead as any divergence compared to the price of stocks can often be very telling of the next move for equity markets.
