(1) US equity market – BULLISH
Mkt is slightly uptrend, still going up within the mild uptrend channel.
Immediate target is 1700. Price may retrace to 1650 at channel support, before going up again to 1700.
Fundamentally, S&P500 is correlated with Bonds (2yr, 5yr treasury notes, and 30yr Bond), Gold, and VIX.
Bonds go up –> S&P500 goes up (Bond and equity market is now positively correlated 0.50+)
VIX goes down –>S&P500 goes up (-0.8)
Gold goes down –> S&P500 goes up (-0.6)
Gold down –> DOllar Index up –> S&P500 Up
Dollar Index Up –> EURUSD down –> S&P500 up
Thus we want to see Gold down, VIX down, Bond up, to be consistent view that Equity mkt is going up. If EURUSD pairs does down and Dollar index up, it will help to confirm S&P500 will go up. Dollar now has positive correlation with S&P500. Relationship changes all the time, and its important to keep track on daily basis.
