Growth Continues to Outperform Value

Growth Continues to Outperform Value

Posted on July 23, 2018
Market State 1- Bullish (9 days):  Historically, Market State 1 has occurred for more trading days than any of the other 12 Market States. Most new highs are registered during Market State 1. As a result of being at or near new highs, the market tends to be a little overextended.  Therefore, Market State 1 can be subject to fast short-term corrections of about 2% to 4% that can occur at anytime.

Canterbury Volatility Index (CVI 56): The Canterbury Volatility Index declined another 4 points last week. Volatility continues to be low and decreasing.  Low/decreasing CVI is a Bullish characteristic.  Volatility at CVI 56 is nearing an extremely low level. A one-day outlier, of 1.5% or more, either up or down is likely when volatility reaches extremely low levels. A one day outlier is typically followed by normal efficient trading and continued low volatility.

Comment: The market remains in a low risk environment. Growth stocks continue to lead value. The advance/decline line is at new highs (bear markets do not start when the A/D is at a new high).

The fact that we are in Market State 1 gives us an indication that the earnings reports should be strong.
