The Best Of See It Market (May 2015)

Despite rising rates and a few flare ups in volatility, the stock market held together pretty well in May. Market breadth continues to be a problem for stocks, but that won’t matter until it does. Active investors are probably best to keep it on their radar and use other price indicators to help them know if/when the stock market breaks down.

That said, the S&P 500 Index (SPX) ended the month of May with a 1 percent gain. That said, the highs for the S&P 500 were established during the middle of the month. Could be in for another “Sell In May”… or will be see a delayed reaction?

Another major market theme is the Fed and interest rates. It appears that treasury yields are doing the “raising” for the Fed. Perhaps this is a precursor to a hike sometime in 2015. The economy isn’t providing easy answers, so perhaps the bond market will continue to help us out.
