Tell Me Something I Don't Know Real Money Pro($)

Occasionally, I post something that replicates the theme of The Chris Matthews Show segment, "Tell Me Something I Don't Know." 

The Forgiving Market Real Money Pro($)

Will this bull market end with the same warning signposts that previous cycles have ended with? Will this bull market end not on bad news, but on good economic news? Given that we are now at historically low rates, will it take a substantial rise in interest rates to seriously dent the market's advance and bull cycle? Will financials, small-cap stocks and breadth peak first and be a precursor to a broader decline in equities? Will a speculative leg and blow-off end the bull market as participants who have not yet invested succumb to the notion that they have missed out on the party? Will valuations (price-earnings multiples) soar to excessive levels in the face of lower-for-longer interest rates before stocks drop in any meaningful way? Will areas other than biotech ( e.g., social media) be needed to bubble up before stocks falter? Will it take another series of "Silly Con Valley" private equity deals' conversion into hot IPOs to resemble the excitement and response to the 1998-2000 IPOs before stocks succumb? Is an unexpected and catastrophic Black Swan a necessary reagent to dent the market's climb? (For example, see Surprise #4 in my 15 Surprises for 2015.) Are we in a new order and is the current bull market about to become the mother of all bull markets just because liquidity is plentiful and interest rates are near zero?  To be sure, no one has the answers to the conditions and questions above. Though I favor fundamentals over technicals (and I remain short), at this point I would have to say that there are so many unusual conditions at work that the past bull market cycle breakers may not be relied on to the degree they have in the past to pinpoint a peak in stock prices.   But it does seem that a climb in investor sentiment to dramatic highs should still be monitored to ascertain an important top condition, for if everyone is in, who will be left to buy?  On that score, we are still not at an extreme in bullish investor sentiment. Indeed, I would observe that the recent trend in sentiment has been towards more pessimism than optimism. This can be observed in sentiment studies (the AAII poll indicates that bulls dropped to a two-year low last week and the NAAIM exposure index fell to the lowest level in three months). Also, the 10-day put/call ratio has been maintained at a high 1.07 until Friday's market rip. Momentum has also improved as the market rallied out of its recent short-term oversold. Breadth hit a new high, volume expanded on the up days last week and new 52-week highs rose to their best level in six weeks. The only thing that seems to indicate some minimum concern is the lack of follow-through in that the senior index (S&P) has not put two up days together in four weeks. (See The Divine Ms. M's. "How About Some Consistency?" she touches on some of these factors and variables). Let's begin to pay more attention to these indicators of investor sentiment in the days and weeks ahead in order to determine if the forgiving market stays forgiving.
