S&P 500 Price Forecast – Sock markets continue to meander

The S&P 500 sat still during the day with a slightly negative band as traders is starting to worry about the G 20 meeting and the lack of progress that will certainly come of it between the Americans and the Chinese. Because of this, the market should sometime soon start to switch to more of a negative bias, but the question isn’t really whether or not that happens, but when it happens. After all, the Americans and the Chinese have shown absolutely no proclivity to work things out, and that seems to be one of the two major things moving the markets.

While it makes no sense to think that a slowing economy should drive stocks higher, this is been the way it’s acted for over a decade now, simply reacting to monetary policy and nothing else.

With that being the case, the correlations of all broken down at the same time as well, as stocks, bonds, and precious metals all go higher at the same time. This shows just how distorted the markets have become over the last several years. Nonetheless, you don’t fight the trend.
