Weekly S&P 500 ChartStorm – The Balance Is Shifting

Those that follow my personal account on Twitter will be familiar with my weekly S&P 500 #ChartStorm in which I pick out 10 charts on the S&P 500 to tweet. Typically I’ll pick a couple of themes to explore with the charts, but sometimes it’s just a selection of charts that will add to your perspective and help inform your own view – whether its bearish, bullish, or something else!

The purpose of this note is to add some extra context and color. It’s worth noting that the aim of the #ChartStorm isn’t necessarily to arrive at a certain view but to highlight charts and themes worth paying attention to. But inevitably if you keep an eye on the charts they tend to help tell the story, as you will see below.

So here’s another S&P 500 #ChartStorm write-up!!

1. The 3200 floor is in place, for now… The S&P

COVID-19 infection rates become weekly ‘nail-biter’ for local businesses: Can they outlast pandemic?

As the county’s public health officer this week methodically reeled off the latest COVID-19 case rates, it quickly became clear that business owners’ greatest fears of yet another shutdown of indoor operations would not be realized.

“We made it through a nail-biter here today,” county Supervisor Jim Desmond said of the news that San Diego had escaped having to leave its red-tier reopening status for the state’s most restrictive purple tier. “It’s kind of a small victory.”

But was it? After six months of navigating the dips and surges of the novel coronavirus and nervously monitoring California’s ever-changing rules for what is and isn’t safe to reopen, local restaurants, bars and gyms are questioning how much longer — if at all — they and their employees can outlast the pandemic.

Since March, they’ve weathered a cycle of government-mandated closings and subsequent reopenings, as the state wrestles with the challenge of

What I Hope Substack Changes About Journalism: The Information’s Weekly Newsletter

We have a major tech news week coming up, with a possible Google antitrust lawsuit, who knows what developments around TikTok, the Palantir and Asana public stock market debuts and much more.

S&P 500 Weekly Update: Reasons To Sell Are Numerous, But The Long-Term Bullish Trend Trumps Them All

“We are drowning in information but starved for knowledge.” – John Naisbitt

Entering this week, the S&P 500 and Nasdaq were down for three straight weeks, and while the magnitude of the declines is nothing near what we saw in the spring, the streak of weekly declines is the longest in more than 11 months for the S&P 500 and 13 months for the Nasdaq. Indeed the stock market has withstood a major shock this year and responded far better than most analysts believed.

The final quarter of 2020 is here next week, and with all the “risks” being highlighted, volatility is likely to remain elevated. There are always at last two ways to view the stock market at any given time. From an optimistic point of view, there is the potential for favorable results from the Phase III clinical trials as early as the end of October, the elections
