The Markets

Fear has returned to Bay and Wall Streets as stocks dipped amidst lingering tensions with North Korea.  The S&P 500 Index shed 1.45% to close below its 50-day moving average, typically a neutral level that investors turn to in times of uncertainty.  Momentum indicators have also dipped into bearish territory.  The move pegs the index below long-term rising trendline support that spans back to the February 2016 low, leaving the market vulnerable to a more prolonged contraction.  Next level of horizontal support can be found at 2400, followed by more significant variable support at the 200-day moving average (2337.22).  Needless to say for our regular followers, seasonal volatility in equity markets is all too common at this time of year, running through to the start of October, on average. 

Sentiment on Thursday, as gauged by the put-call ratio, close surprisingly bullish at 0.93.
