On SPX Correlation

The stock markets showed signs of bearish reversal last day after days of a shocking uptrend. The bears seem to be hurt worse on the wall street than in the crypto markets. As the crisis due to COVID-19 continues to linger in the west, the economic stimulus by Governments seems to be the reason behind uptrend.

The SPX index is trading at $2650, after the swing low at $2190 in the recent panic crash. According to, Thomas Lee, financial analyst and partner at Fundstrat, the stocks are out-performing the ‘dead-cat’ bounces from the last three times.

The point of reversal of a bounce in 1987, 2002 and even in 2008 was technically below current levels. He tweeted,

S&P 500 passed 2,475 and 2,600, so stock not “repelled” by retracements ceiling (25%/33%) that led retest lows ’87, ’02 and ’08.

– but moving up 2,793 (50% retrace) is the market confirming recovery.
