We’ve had quite a rally over the past month in the U.S. Stock Market. This is exactly the type of behavior that we should come to expect after a failed breakdown and bullish momentum divergence, like we saw occur in early February. Let’s remember that the U.S. and other developed markets, like Europe for example, are the laggards here. We turned bullish Global Equities in late January, particularly Emerging Markets, and it wasn’t until a retest of the January lows, that we started to see the shift in the U.S. and other developed economies early last month.
We only wanted to be long the S&P500 if we were above the August and September lows. The bullish momentum divergence on last month’s sell-off helped spark this mean reversion rally.
