- Friday's bear signals on the S&P 500, Nasdaq 100, high-yield corporate debt, emerging markets evaporate; still in bull phase. (SPY, QQQQ, JNK, EEM)
Stocks and Rates
This is the biggest mass evaporation of a signal that I've ever seen from Person's Proprietary Signal (pps). What does it mean? Very little. The market was down when the signals came into play, and then it recovered intraday.
As a trader, I've got to say that the tendency of the pps to produce ephemeral signals is frustrating. Note to John Person's: Must fix this. Otherwise, it's a pretty good market tool, in my experience.
Below, oil and gold, and global indicators.
