It's been a volatile few weeks in the markets, and it can be hard to tell if we're currently in a risk-on or risk-off environment.

Have we seen the market lows for 2022, or will the market reverse lower before the end of the year?

DIA Weekly Chart
DIA Weekly Chart

The market indicates that investors favor large-cap defensive sectors. The Dow Jones leads the indices (as represented by DIA above), with utilities, consumer staples, and healthcare sectors ahead of the pack.

Looking at the major indices, DIA is the only major US index above its 200-week moving average and also the only index above its 200-day moving average. DIA needs to hold 329 at the weekly close to remain in an uptrend.

Many pundits are debating whether we will have a Fed engineered soft landing or a deep recession in 2023.

Will OPEC cut production or raise levels? Will we exhaust the strategic petroleum reserves, or will the move to deplete the SPR combat inflation effectively and keep oil prices down in 2023?

These are fair questions to anticipate clarifying current risk on or risk off sentiment.

So, where does the market go from here?

QQQ Weekly Chart
QQQ Weekly Chart

This market has been anything but stable of late - one minute up, then down within days.

The Nasdaq Composite (represented by QQQ) is in a recovery phase along with the S&P 500 (SPY) and small caps (IWM). The QQQs need to hold their weekly trend and stay above 281 at the weekly close to neutralize further downside.

Other indicators are less reliable than price, momentum, and phase. For example, the yield curve is inverted on the short-term part of the curve yet remains relatively flat on the longer end, providing little clarity into where long-term rates are ultimately headed.

The yield curve also continues to invert on the short end while remaining flat on the longer end, which could be an early indicator of a recession. Yet, third-quarter GDP estimates are looking encouraging.

The risk-on/risk-off phenomenon has existed for as long as financial markets have existed. There are clearly many mixed signals today.

Understanding how the risk-on/risk-off construct works can help you make more informed trading decisions and protect your portfolio against dramatic swings.

While it can be hard to predict an exact risk on or risk off shift, it's essential to be aware of its overall impact on asset pricing.

We have a daily research service called Big View, which helps clarify risk on and risk off sentiment by utilizing many indicators to produce an overall view. Currently, the risk indicators are 100% risk off.

Monitoring our proprietary trading indicators and key price trends of major US indices will give you a better idea of when to take on more risk or protect your trading with tighter stops.

If you want to succeed in the financial markets, you must have a thorough grasp of what drives investor sentiment, how it varies over a day, week, or quarter, and how to assess these changes over more extended trading periods.

ETF Summary

S&P 500 (SPY) The resistance at 400-405 remains persistent with support at 387.

Russell 2000 (IWM) 190 is the ultimate point to clear. Support to hold 180.

Dow (DIA) Inside week which means we want to see this hold 335.50 to stay in the game.

Nasdaq (QQQ) Weakest index. Has to clear 290 or hold 275 or trouble.

KRE (Regional Banks) 65.00 resistance 60 support.

SMH (Semiconductors) 209 is the biggest support level to hold.

IYT (Transportation) 217 support and big resistance at 232.

IBB (Biotechnology) 129 support and 135 resistance

XRT (Retail) Over 67.00 we could see a Santa’s rally. Under 62.00 big failure.

Will the Dow Continue Higher? Will the Nasdaq Follow?
