Today, most U.S. stocks traded lower with the S&P and Dow closing in the red while the Nasdaq was able to hold on to modest gains. Fed Chair Powell met with the press following the conclusion of the two-day Federal Open Market Committee meeting this afternoon and announced the Feds intention to keep interest rates at 0%-0.25% through 2020 while maintaining its bond-buying program. The latest Fed balance sheet showed an increase from $4 trillion to $7.2 trillion while today’s release of May’s consumer price index showed inflation dipped 0.1%. Our models are projecting the SPY to trade between $270-$330 level in the next 2-3 weeks and the market is unlikely to retest $260 SPY level. In the short term, we will be buyers into any corrections and it is our opinion the market is still overbought. We will continue monitoring the VIX as the market can overshoot support and resistance levels when VIX is trading near $30 level. Investors should consider hedging portfolios into the rallies. Market Commentary readers are encouraged to maintain clearly defined stop-levels for all positions. For reference, the SPY Seasonal Chart is shown below:
Today, the Dow and S&P closed 1.03% and 0.53% lower, respectively, while the Nasdaq reported gains of 0.66%. Globally, Asian closed to mixed results while European markets finished in the red. Oil and gold moved higher. The dollar slipped and long-term U.S. Treasury notes saw yields edge lower.
