We kicked off the new year of 2024 with an overheated stock market, excessively bullish breadth indicators, and euphoric sentiment levels. While the first week in January felt like a “wake-up call” pullback for awestruck bulls, last week saw the S&P 500 push right back up to all-time highs.

Leading growth names like META are making new all-time highs. Will the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 follow suit, or is this the last gasp higher in a double top pattern for the major market averages?

In today’s “choose your own adventure” style video, we’ll break down four potential scenarios for the S&P 500 index over the next 6-8 weeks. Using technical analysis tools, we’ll lay out the key levels to watch and discuss some of the macro trends and leadership themes that would most likely accompany each scenario.

  • What would cause the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 to achieve new all-time highs in Q1, and which stocks and sectors stand to lead the charge higher?
  • How could rising interest rates temper bullish sentiment, and cause the major benchmarks to stall out for a retest of recent price support?
  • What guideposts could help us identify deteriorating market conditions to minimize capital loss in a bearish scenario?

Watch the breakdown of the four scenarios, then cast your vote. Which scenario do you see as most likely, and why?
