Technical Report for the Week of 06/06/22

Updated: Jun 6

Technical Summary


Equities – The ability of SPX to rebound from key support at 3,810-3,837 has triggered another oversold SPX rally to pivotal medium-term resistance at 4,195.5-4,249 (38.2% retracement from Jan-May 2022 decline, 50% retracement from Mar-May 2022 decline, and 50-day ma). A breakout renders a retest of 4,307.5-4,321, 4,433.5-4,513, and 4,818.62 (Jan 2022 all-time high). Initial support rises to 4,062.5 (5/2/22 low) and below this 3,859-3,810/3,789 (5/12 and 5/20/22 reaction lows and bottom of Dec 2021 downtrend channel).


Fixed Income – The 10-year minus 3-mo yield spread has diverged from the more popular 10-year minus 2-year yield spread. A rally to 2.27 (4/6/22) led to consolidation to 1.66 or near the 200-day ma (1.60). The 10-year minus 2-year spread inverted during Apr 2022 at -0.06. The inversion warns of a US recession as early as Dec 2022-Feb 2023.TNX nears structural resistance at 3.0-3.25% (top of the 1980 downtrend and the 2013/2018 highs). Failure to breakout and an oversold condition may lead to a multi-year consolidation.


Commodities – CRB enters a commodities super cycle like 1971-1980. Next resistance is 313/321.5-326 (2012/2014 highs) and 332-338 (61.8% retracement from 2008-2021 decline). Initial support is 315.95, 307-309, 293-297, 286, 280.5, 269.5, and 259-263. WTI Crude tests resistance at 107-114/130.50 (2011/2013/Mar 2022 highs) and 147/140 (2008 record highs).
