From Bob’s World: Are We There Yet?
I last wrote in November (Risk not on?) and since then markets have broadly continued to track the medium-term bigger picture outlook set out in that note, as well as the shorter-term tactical “S&P500 1450/1475 rule? that I also discussed in that piece and in my earlier September note (Stop Loss Update). I wanted to publish now to provide some extra clarity:
1 – The medium-term and the ‘1450/1475 rule’: I wanted to recap the views set out in the above notes. Over the medium term – the first half or so of 2013 – I expected risk assets to rally with the S&P500 trading in the 1500s. Drivers were largely centred on more kicking of the can by policymakers. In terms of the “1450/1475 rule? for the S&P500, in place since September, the call has been and remains that on any weekly close above 1475, the outlook for risk assets is bullish and remains bullish until and unless we see a weekly close below 1450 for the S&P500, at which point the outlook flips to bearish. And the 1450/1475 zone for the S&P remains the neutral/zero position/no-go zone.
