- S&P 500, Nasdaq 100 negate bull signals on the fast stochastic; turn back to the bear (SPY, QQQQ).
- Fear index shows bull phase on Person's Proprietary Signal (pps), but it's ghosting (VIX).
- Treasury long-term bonds whipsaw back into bull phase on the pps (TLT).
Stocks and Rates
The major stock/bond indicators are all showing signs of resurgent downwardness for stock prices and bond yields. Bearishness in stocks (SPY, QQQQ) means bonds (TLT) become more attractive, so traders bid up bond prices, reducing their yields. Meanwhile, the so-called "fear index" (VIX) -- volatility of the S&P 500 -- shows bullishness as traders turn bearish on stocks.
It's all typical behavior. The VIX, however, is ghosting -- the pps signal is appearing and disappearing -- suggesting the bear trend in stocks is not all that strong.
