From MarketBeat:
Bearish SocGen Analysts: ‘Batten Down the Hatches’
Societe Generale’s ursine markets strategists Albert Edwards and Dylan Grice pubbed a note Monday pooh-poohing September’s stellar run for equities:
September has clearly been a great month for equities as the dire oversold position seen in mid-year has been successfully worked off (see front page and chart below). But with almost 90% of stocks now above their 50-day moving average, it is time to batten down the hatches. Expect the market to soon display its normal fickle promiscuity in reverse: warmly embracing weaker-than-expected economic data while shrugging off its recent fondness for strong data.
