HYG Leading SPY Lower?
After witnessing the immaculate short squeeze from 1,864, the SPX staged an impressive rebound. But as I mentioned earlier today (on my InvestFeed - link below), the SPY is looking weak, and the , which measures trend strength, is beginning to fall.
This is interesting because HYG tends to flow with the SPX (and SPY ). As equities had a sharp correction so does high-yield The opposite is also true, and junk bonds rallied along side equities. SPY also acts more "violently" when prices diverge greatly.
According to Daily News, roughly $10.7 billion was injected into U.S. equity ETFs last month, while $8.3 billion of inflows were seen in U.S. corporate bond ETFs - the largest monthly inflow recorded. HYG took in just over $5.5 billion.
This is important because today's trader shows the epitome of herd behavior: all cramming into a few trade ideas. So, when that idea doesn't material, traders flee and the response is not exactly orderly.
Price action is on a few minor support levels, but there is , and DMI momentum. looks to be moving upwards supporting negative price action.
If the SPY breaks down lower (I'm expecting mid-160k NFP tomorrow), this could spell trouble for HYG .
