There’s nothing quite like the feeling of making a good case for a certain outcome, and then having the market feed you a big mouthful of crow. Last week it appeared as if the market was stabilizing near support, but then a vortex of selling whipped through the market leaving us wondering – what the heck just happened?

Let’s begin today by taking a look at the technical damage that has been done, then we’ll switch gears and see what the economic backdrop behind all of this price action looks like.

Some of the strongest moves in the stock market often come when no one is expecting them. After a vicious start to the year – which almost triggered a Dow Theory sell signal, the market found itself in a renewed uptrend beginning in early April.

Welcome to Sigma Point Capital!

Hello and welcome to Sigma Point Capital, the new home of Matt's Market Analysis!

Many of you are accustomed to reading my market commentary at Dow Theory Letters, but unfortunately, DTL is undergoing a major change and is being merged with a separate newsletter.

But don't despair ... over the years I've developed a passion for writing about the markets (I think I caught Richard's bug) and I intend to keep writing my weekly analysis here on this new platform at Sigma Point Capital.
