Market Breadth Divergences

MarketSurge powers the charts in this video.

SPY is at all-time highs and yet there are more stocks hitting new 52-week lows than 52-week highs? Historically, this has led to a pullback in the next few weeks. This doesn’t mean that it will happen again but it is something to consider when taking on new positions. Maybe risking less and being more selective is the way to go.

There are still decent setups that lead to quick 1-3-day moves but volatility has picked up and we are seeing more reversals.

One of the groups that stood out last week was social media. META broke above 480 and it is now consolidating. PINS followed through to new all-time highs. SNAP also bounced on Friday.

Semiconductors had a big breakout. A few that have set up for a potential move higher include LRCX, AMAT, AMD, etc.

Crypto-related stocks and ETFs had a strong week up until Friday when most sold on heavy volume. It seems interest rates impact crypto too. We saw a big bounce in rates after a much hotter-than-expected jobs number on Friday.

In the meantime, the US Dollar also had a big rally which put pressure on most commodities.
