1 Long and 1 Short Trade as the Bond Market Bottoms

by | Jan 5, 2022 | Stock Market Sectors

Momentum levels are rising and the Russell 2000 is set to break out as the bond market bottoms — and more in Wednesday’s stock market recap.

Momentum is one of the internals I like to keep an eye on because it can help us identify whether the market is strong or weak…

And for the first time in a while, more than 50% of all stocks priced above $2 trading above their 50-day moving averages.

The chart for momentum levels exhibited what’s called a double bottom, and is now starting to break out to the upside.

This is a bullish sign, and the chart for the Russell 2000 looks almost exactly the same, indicating it’s also poised to move higher.

We’re also seeing the bond market finally bottoming out. And with interest rates set to move higher, I have one trade set to benefit and one that won’t, both with an option pick! 

Elsewhere in the news, Chicago Public Schools, the third-largest school district in the country, voted to cancel in-person classes and return to remote learning due to the surge in COVID-19 cases.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is set to meet on Wednesday to discuss COVID-19 boosters and their use, as well as updating isolation guidelines.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, you’ll learn whether I’m bullish or bearish on bonds… whether volatility will pick up or stay calm… how to analyze the top 100 Nasdaq stocks… which sectors will stay bullish and which will turn bearish… the major levels for small caps… and a long and a short trade with an option pick for each.
