In its weekly review, Oppenheimer’s technical strategist addresses the phenomena that characterize January, which is traditionally characterized by the transition of investors’ money to channels that lagged behind at the end of the previous year. This year we saw a shift in investment from “growth” channels to “value” channels, with Ari Wald believing that the positive trend in the US general stock market should be maintained, even in the rotation scenario for “value” channels.

Looking at the broad S&P 500 index, Wald notes the continuation of the positive trend, as long as the index remains above the support level of 4,600 points. However, it is waiting for another sign to support the positive trend, an increase above 60% in the S&P 500 Representative Rate which is in a positive trend (above an average moving to 200 days), while this figure still remains below the 60% threshold, mainly due to relative weakness in corporate stocks Small. The stock market’s seasonal behavioral pattern is consistent with the ‘January effect’, with stocks that have performed poorly so far closing the gap with stocks that rose at the end of the previous year. Hold, when this time it is a broad participation of “value” stocks that recorded relative weakness in the second half of 2021. However, the Small-Cap stock channel that recorded relative weakness throughout 2021 as a whole, is not able to recover this year either, despite the “January effect” pattern. “Due to the high concentration of representatives from the health sector, especially biotechnology, who are not affected by macro factors and do not belong to the ‘value’ group of shares.”
