Tech Talk for Tuesday June 28th 2016

 

Observations

Another brutal day on world equity markets thanks to continuing Brexit concerns! A wide variety of equity markets and sectors broke key support levels yesterday. Downtrends for an increasing number of equity markets/sectors/individual equities (other than interest sensitive and precious metal sectors) were recorded. Momentum indicators for North American equity markets already are oversold, but have yet to show signs of bottoming. Anticipation of mixed-to-difficult second quarter earnings reports starting in the second week in July will not help investor sentiment. See consensus estimates for TSX 60 companies below. Best for equity investors and traders with cash to “sit in the weeds” at least until technical signs of a bottom have been recorded.
