Weekend Market Review January 20, 2023
Last week, momentum and breadth thrusts were all the rage. SPY was back above the 200-day moving average. Bulls were starting to rumble and snort. Early Tuesday the market looked like it wanted to give some follow-through.
But this market has been nothing if not shifty and evasive. So it slipped out of the spotlight and back down to find some support.
So far that support is holding and the week has ended on a high note with SPY right back at the 200-day.
It may not be the breakout many were hoping for. But a quick rebound from the sharp selloff is encouraging.

SPY continues to consolidate, working its way further into the apex of this triangle. While the resolution, of course, could move in either direction, breadth and seasonality lend to the bullish case. RSI staying above 50 on this pullback is helpful too.
Support has held in the expected areas outlined in Wednesday’s Mid-Week Market Update. The bullish sequence is still active.
QQQ bounced well and is up the most for the day, and the week.
IWM is lagging and has some catching up to do. But a successful retest of the breakout (if that is what the ends up being) is an added bullish sign.
DIA lags a bit on the week. Red flag or rotation? Time will tell.
DXY continues to ride along the 50% retracement level
VIX spiked a bit but hasn’t been threatening
An astute reminder from another market veteran with more years of experience than almost anyone.
No matter how smart.
No matter how experienced.
No matter how good or bad the chart may look.
No one knows what’s going to happen.
The thing that everyone is focused on rarely happens exactly as expected.
Things that everyone thinks are unlikely or even impossible happen all the time.
That’s all for now. Thanks for reading, sharing, and subscribing.
Have questions? Or is there something you’d like to see more of here?
The lines are always open. Reply to this email (if that’s where you’re reading), leave a comment, or better still, @ me on Twitter where I share timely updates throughout the week.
And as always, weekly charts will be there in the morning.
Enjoy the weekend!
