Mish’s Daily: The Elders Both Fatigue: Grandpa Russell 2000 V. Granny Retail
Written by Michele ‘Mish’ Schneider
An AI image to illustrate that while Monday, Granddad Russell (IWM) was offering a helping hand to his wife Granny Retail (XRT) , today, they both looked more vulnerable.
Just as the S&P 500 failed to clear its 23-month moving average, we are hoping that IWM not only holds its 80-month MA (green on the monthly chart) but also holds its 50-DMA (blue on the daily chart)
Real Motion-our proprietary indicator that lets you see hidden strength or weakness during market trends, shows momentum still above its 50 and 200-DMAs.
It also remains, despite the price drop, in a bullish diversion meaning momentum is ok.
Yet, with today’s sell off, and considering we might have hit the top of this year’s trading range in SPY, Granny remains a concern.
Granny XRT fell in price closer to the March low.
Momentum though is now going sideways sitting on the Bollinger band, perhaps getting ready for a mean reversion.
That would be a better sign for everyone if XRT holds here and turns higher.
These two key Family members in the Economic Modern Family are not only telling a story-they are the story.
That story reflects a thin veil of optimism but with enough doubt that unless both move higher from here, the market could return to risk off. That is until SPY tests the lower regions of its persistent trading range.
