The stock market is clearly seeing a shift in order flow.
Technology, energy and basic materials took a break today but are clearly finding buyers. Market momentum is strong but long-term order flow is neutral at best.
A break above the $200 level tomorrow in the SPY will cause a short-covering rally and bring new money to the market.
Today’s price action was important. The stock market paused but did not trade lower. Earnings season begins, which normally means a nice catalyst to get the market out of the funk.
I don’t think that’s the case right now, it’s clear we are waiting on the Fed.

Basic materials took a break today as did some tech stocks but the price action appears to be nothing more than a pause.
