Tech Talk for Friday May 13th 2016

 

Daily Observations

Momentum barometers for S&P 500 and TSX Composite stocks continued to drift lower yesterday from intermediate overbought levels.

Commodity prices are diverging:

Copper dropped to a 10 week low

The Agriculture Products ETF broke to a 6 month high, thanks mainly to strength in grain prices.

Retail stocks are in for another tough trading day today following release by Nordstrom’s of significantly lower than consensus first quarter earnings after the close. The stock traded below $38 in after hour’s trading.

Investor confidence in Valeant Pharmaceutical continues to deteriorate. The stock broke support in Canadian and U.S. Dollars yesterday to reach a 6 year lows in U.S. Dollars. Valeant bond prices also were hit.
