A Review of Momentum and Sentiment Indicators – 09/21/22

On the FOMC interest rate announcement day, US stocks continued to decline.  The daily S&P 500 (SPX) – RSI bullish divergence was eliminated.   This blog updates the actions of two internal momentum indicators.

The daily chart courtesy of StockCharts.com examines  US New Highs  minus New Lows (5-day total – end of day) StockCharts.com symbol ($USHL5).

$USHL5 has broken below its 09/06/22 bottom although its still declining slower than the SPX,  As of 09/21/22 $USHLH had retraced 52% of its move up from the 06/17/22 bottom, while the SPX has retraced 77%.

This  is  an update of the  cumulative daily SPX – Advance/Decline line chart – StockCharts.com symbol ($SPXADP).

This indicator also broke below its 09/06/22 level and is also declining slower relative to the SPX. A 70% retracement of the rise  from the 06/17/22 bottom vs. a 77% SPX retracement.

The Put/Call ratio on 09/21/22 reached a high of .998 vs. the high on 09/16/22 of 1.398 – a potential bullish divergence.

The VIX action was inconclusive.

The combination of relatively slow declining momentum, and bullish Put/Call readings  imply an intermediate bottom could be approaching.  Near – term the door is open for more downside price action.
