Referring to what has become our favorite chart of 2018, in his latest Flow Show report, BofA’s Michael Hartnett reminds his readers that Fed tightening cycles always end with financial “event” observing that much as peak liquidity in Q1 coincided with peak returns & trough volatility, “peak volatility & trough returns will coincide with Fed capitulation driven by “event” and recession fear.”

Meanwhile, over in China, BofA expects PBoC capitulation via negative China export growth, while BofA also anticipates “Trump capitulation” once US payrolls post a sub-50K print and/or weekly unemployment claims of more than 50K.

That said, the US stock market is currently undergoing a “PKO” (price keeping operation) via what Hartnett sees as “manipulation of & pressure on oil/US dollar/Fed to ease financial conditions; vicious tech & credit unwind + consensus now “long volatility” + Clarida/Powell/G20 next week.” As a result, markets may try to bounce toward SPX 2750 & CCMP 7500.

Even so, Bank of America remains “still a seller” as it sees no positioning or policy capitulation yet; Specifically, institutional positioning not bearish enough to signal Big Low, while the BofAML Bull & Bear Indicator is at 2.8 (2.0 needed for “buy”), and the BofAML Breadth Rule @ 76% of global markets oversold (88% needed for technical “buy”).
