Santa Claus Rally – And Beyond?!

By Todd Gordon
December 23, 2022

Here’s a follow up to yesterday’s video discussing the outlook for the S&P 500 into the targeted corrective resistance. We understand the challenges and obstacles this economy faces to return to growth mode in 2023 and don’t want to appear as if they are lost on us. But we are seeing evidence that a return to growth and higher equity prices are possible, despite the mixed signals we’re getting from the Fed and long-term US yields and inflation expectations. We see technical evidence that we are testing support and combined with such a broad awareness and expectation of the ‘coming recession’ we can’t help but think sentiment is peak bearish, hedges widely established, and equity positioning very light. Do these inputs open the possibility of a sizable corrective rally and possibly beyond? Or, is this simply another case of ‘don’t fight the Fed’ and hop on board a move to lower equity prices to stamp out inflation? This remains to be seen.
