Questions over profits and potential recession mean more sales could be ahead

The Dow Jones and S&P 500 have fallen for six straight days, with many seeing large-scale selling typical of so-called “washout” days.

This can sometimes be a counter buy signal on Wall Street, but many investment professionals are skeptical that the sell will end. One reason is that earnings forecasts for next year still show solid growth, which would be unlikely in a recession.

“We know that if we start to see a reversal in 2-year yields…and if we start to see a reversal in the dollar, that gives us the opportunity to rebound from these extremely oversold conditions,” said Andrew Smith, director investments. strategist at Delos Capital Advisors in Dallas. “But I’m having a hard time reconciling in my mind that the earnings story will be as good as expected.”

Additionally, dramatic moves in the bond and currency markets mean “something snapped” and it may be wise to wait for that information to come out, Smith said.

On the positive side, Smith pointed to a strong labor market and signs of continued travel spending as a sign that the US economy may be able to avoid a major recession.

S&P 500 hits June low on Tuesday

Although Tuesday’s closing levels showed relatively modest daily moves, the S&P 500 fell below its previous intraday low for the year during the session. The move was seen by many as confirmation that stocks’ summer rally has failed.

The S&P 500 is now 24.3% off its all-time high, and the Dow Jones is also in bearish territory, down about 21.2%. The Nasdaq Composite, whose decline dates back to last November, is 33.2% below its high water mark.

The next key metric for investors in the days ahead could come from the bond market, where the 10-year Treasury yield jumped just below the 4% level.
