March 19, 2020

Market volatility and weakness accelerated this week through Wednesday though U.S. Senate passage of a “bailout” measure may lead to a rebound on Thursday. In general, you should sell into strength and cautiously buy into weakness. Our emerging market signal is decidedly negative with the EEM down to 30 from a mid-January high of 46. It has not been at this low a level since early 2016 and got down to 20 at the bottom of the global financial crisis in 2008. Today we do a little selling, increase our S&P 500 Inverse ETF position marginally and add JPMorgan (JPM) to the watch list.
