Top Trading Links – March 18

It was a choppy week for U.S. equities, as the S&P 500 (INDEXSP:.INX) bounced around on the Fed before settling up +0.25%.

But as the U.S. stock market tries to continue higher, it may contend with a glaring RSI divergence (if we see new highs in prices, but not new highs in RSI/Momentum).

Ultimately, this could lead to a pullback. No, this doesn’t mean a major top or a call for a 15-20 percent decline. Only price will dictate that… and price should be what leads investors to their risk management decisions.

That said, it was a busy week for news.  Investors received a rate hike, a typical amount of “noise” about the president, along with options expiration. The rest of the month tends to be seasonality strong, followed by weakness late in the month into early April. But not all years are created equal.
