The Strange Inability Of The Tech Stock Indexes To Get Going

A brand new excessive on the Normal & Poors 500 and a brand new excessive on the Russell 2000 small caps however the index representing the main tech names of our time cant even come shut? Whats CNBC going to do in the event that theyre compelled to start speaking about (gasp!) tiny capitalization non-techs?

Now that the election is over and President-elect Biden is making ready to take over come January 20th, you would possibly anticipate the main indexes to be confirming each other. Final weeks occasions left buyers with the alternative. The main sector for the previous couple of years by far can barely even make an effort.

And, in line with The Market Ear, even the S&P may need underlying points for the reason that variety of buyers shorting shares is continuous to say no to ever vanishing ranges. Fewer and fewer shorts? Its not essentially the kind of factor youd need to see, from a contrarian viewpoint. I imply, if you happen to have been bullish.

Lets take a look at some fundamental charts and analyze.

Thats the big cap index hitting a brand new excessive on the Monday morning vaccine information. Be aware that it simply peeked above the September excessive earlier than collapsing. Be aware its failure to shut the day larger than that September stage. Be aware how Fridays shut couldnt make it again to the Monday excessive.

Be aware the damaging divergences on the momentum measures: each the relative energy indicator (RSI) above the worth chart and transferring common convergence/divergence indicator under it. A lot of quantity on the Monday spike up virtually as if new patrons discovered keen sellers.

The Russell 2000 small cap index is stunning a couple of people on Wall Road by clearly beating all the different indexes. Mondays new excessive took out the August/September highs a greater exhibiting than the S&P and the NASDAQ-100. You may see that even with promoting coming in later within the week, the Russell manages to remain virtually fully above the low of the Monday buying and selling. Some skilled merchants says this reminds them of the 1999/2000 market.

The NASDAQ-100 (as represented by the Invesco QQQ Belief right here) couldnt make it again above the September peak, even on the vaccine rally. Matter of truth, on that day, the index moved all the way in which again all the way down to its lows for the day and went broke even decrease Tuesday earlier than solely considerably recovering the remainder of the week. Ive drawn a crimson dotted line to attach the September peak with the November peak simply to be sure to can see the problem right here.

Do you bear in mind what the 5 prime parts of the NASDAQ-100 are?

Right here you go: 1) Apple

, 2) Microsoft

, 3) Amazon

, 4) Fb and 5) Alphabet, also called Google.

No new excessive for the tech inventory index with these well-known names in it when the big caps and the small caps make it there? Its virtually extraordinary.

One thing has modified.
