Below are our latest articles about the S&P 500 Index that are written by InvestingHaven’s research team articles, symbol SPY.
The S&P 500 Index chart is among the most well known and most viewed charts.
There is nothing wrong with the S&P 500 Index chart, but our belief at InvestingHaven is that it’s not the most important index chart to analyze.
The underlying rationale is that the S&P 500 index chart is not the leading indicator according to us. It is not able to signal turnarounds in stock markets, it is lagging mostly. The one that is leading is the Russell 2000 combined with 10-year Yields. More about our thinking in our continuously updated market monitor 15 Leading Indicators For The Dominant Market Trend
As there is not a whole lot of predictive value in the S&P 500 Index chart then why do we include it on InvestingHaven? The reason is that it is an important index if and when stock markets are trending. More specifically, it has the 9 key stock market sectors which can help in our understanding in which segments there is most relative strength.
In other words as per our methodology we tend to use the Russell 2000 for forecasting and the 9 S&P 500 stock sector segments for relative strength analysis.
The million dollar question is whether the S&P 500 Index chart shows that the secular bull market started in 2009 or in 2013. The thesis behind the former is obviously that is was the 2-decade bottom. However, the thesis behind the latter is that the 2000-2013 period was a trading range with a triple top breakout in 2013. If the latter is the case then there is more upside in the S&P 500.
