Market/ETF Video – Evidence is Bullish, but SPY Reverses Upswing within Wedge, Big Sectors and Tech ETFs Follow Suit (Premium)

Market/ETF Review and Outlook Video

The weight of the evidence is technically bullish for the stock market, but the bears fired a shot across the bow as SPY and other key ETFs broke short-term support levels. Many ETFs were consolidating with falling flags, falling wedges or even flat flags. Instead of breaking to the upside, they broke to the downside and reversed their short-term uptrends. 2022 was year of the big swing and the whipsaw. I cannot help but wonder if 2023 will continue as such for a few months. Elsewhere, the 10-yr Treasury Yield broke out, the Dollar is strong and oil cannot break resistance. Stock-based ETFs are in pullback mode here in February. Outside of stocks, we are seeing some strength in copper and soybeans.

Next Report will be posted on Friday, February 24th
