Low Rider Stock Market Trades Like It’s Drunk

Michele Schneider

New Mexico is filled with creative juxtaposition.

Whether intentional or accidental, whoever parked a low rider next to a Miller Lite truck, caused this stock market metaphor seeker to jump out of her car and snap the photo.

Once again, I am reminded of the stock market.

Just when you think the market cannot possibly drive that low without destroying the under belly, a switch ignites and sends it bouncing off the lows.

However, although the Russell 2000 (NYSEARCA: IWM) managed to hold the bullish phase on the daily, on the weekly chart we see a different picture.

Furthermore, the other members of the economic Modern Family still have to convince me that their low-riding prices have much spring left.

Where does the beer come in?

The wide swings in price intraday, make it seem like the market raided the Miller lite truck.

Let’s look at the weekly charts…

stock market sectors pullback performance important investing news analysis _ may 13

The top left is Transportation Sector (NYSEARCA: IYT). 

IYT held 190 or the 50-WMA (blue line). That keeps the sector in play until it closes a week below that area.

The Semiconductors Sector (NYSEARCA: SMH), already well above the 50-WMA, Friday, managed to marginally hold the 50-DMA at 110.26.

The Russell 2000, IWM, held the golden cross (or where the 50 DMA cleared above the 200 DMA.) Yet, on the weekly chart, it failed to close above the 50-WMA at 157.04.

Bottom left, Retail XRT closed below the 200-WMA (green). That puts it in a bearish phase on the daily charts, and in a distribution phase on the weekly chart.

Biotechnology IBB, also in a bearish phase on the daily chart, has managed to hold its 200-WMA on the weekly chart thus far. 

Regional Banks KRE, is in a recuperation phase on the daily chart. On the weekly chart, it will either break the 54.15 area or clear 56.77, the 50-WMA. 

At this point, a spring rain, coupled with unseasonably cold temperatures, cannot prevent this low rider market from attracting buyers.

Could it be the combination of its gaudy paint job and a fuel tank filled with lite beer?
