MOMO CROWD EXCITED ABOUT S&P 500 MOVE ABOVE 2900, INDIAN RUPEE FALLS, OFFICE CLOSED

To gain an edge, this is what you need to know today.

S&P 500 Move Above 2900

The S&P 500 has moved above 2900.  This is exciting the momo crowd.  The momo crowd is now setting their sights on S&P 500 hitting 3000.  Sentiment remains very positive.  We discussed the impact of the very positive sentiment in yesterday’s Morning Capsule.

Momo Crowd And Smart Money In Stocks

The momo crowd continues to aggressively buy in the early trade.  The smart money is lightly selling into the strength.

Indian Rupee Falls

The Indian rupee fell to an all time low of 70.89 per U. S. dollar.  The reasons behind the move are the following:

  • The Reserve Bank of India’s failure to raise interest rates.
  • The rise in oil prices.  India is a big oil importer.
  • Strong month end dollar demand.

India remains one of the best investment opportunities for the long term.  However the drop in currency is causing concerns.

Gold

Trading in gold is listless in the absence of any major development.

Oil

Iran has warned that it will stop movement of all oil through the Strait of Hormuz if its exports through the Strait are restricted (based on potential sanctions by the U. S.).  30% of all sea borne oil travels through the Strait. The Strait is a narrow choke point.  This is causing strong buying in oil.

PAY ATTENTION: STOCK MARKET SENTIMENT REACHES ‘VERY HIGH’ LEVEL

To gain an edge, this is what you need to know today.

Sentiment Reaches ‘Very High’ Level

Stock market sentiment has reached ‘very high’ level.  Investors need to pay attention for two reasons.

  • Historically it is common for strong up moves when sentiment reaches this high level.  For example, take a look at the moves in December 2017 and January 2018.
  • When sentiment reaches very high level, the market also has the propensity to abruptly reverse and go into a correction.

Under these market conditions, it is important to pay attention to the ‘What To Do Now’ section below.  As tempting as it is to aggressively buy, it is important to exercise patience and stay disciplined.
