1/ Internet Stocks Hit Fresh Highs

We’ve been emphasizing the recent leadership from technology stocks, which are leading markets higher as January draws to a close.

Today, the First Trust Dow Jones Internet ETF (FDN) was up roughly 1% as price pierced through the upper bounds of a short-term reversal pattern.

2/ Will the 10-Year Treasury Yield Hold?

All eyes are on U.S. Treasury yields as we approach next week’s FOMC meeting. We’re keeping an eye on the critical polarity zone marked by last year’s June highs and December lows.

Whether the 10-year yield (TNX) undercuts these former highs or digs in and catches higher could have broad market implications.

If it rolls over, long-duration assets could continue to rise. Such an environment would be favorable for growth stocks and other risk assets.

On the other hand, more losses could lie ahead for risk assets if yields turn higher. Bonds would resume their ongoing structural downtrend, while the bottoming process for major U.S. equity benchmarks could be delayed.

Remember: Sideways is always an option for yields. It’s what we’re experiencing today, and stock market investors seem to like it.

3/ Mexican Equities Break Out

International equity markets have soared since bottoming out late last year. Whether you look at emerging markets or developed markets, they have one factor in common: new highs.

The iShares MSCI Mexico ETF (EWW) does a great job of illustrating the recent strength overseas.

As you can see, price has been carving out a rounding bottom formation for the past seven years. More recently, buyers have taken control and sent prices to their highest level since 2015.

Seeing more and more countries resolving higher provides more bullish evidence that could point to a new uptrend for international equities in general.

4/ Grains Remain Elevated

As impressive as copper, gold, and silver have been in recent months, it’s hard to ignore the buoyancy of other more obscure commodity contracts.

Here is a chart of Kansas City wheat futures:

This contract represents the most common wheat variety grown in the United States. Despite weakness among commodity indexes, wheat futures appear to be carving out a tradeable low.

An upside resolution from current levels would be another bullish indicator for the commodities space.

The bottom line is that it’s hard to consider a bearish thesis for commodities when most contracts remain elevated and refuse to break down. Wheat futures provide an excellent example.
