Viewing the Recent Shift in Money Flow Trends

Jun 24, 2013: 9:50 AM CST

While the Federal Reserve policy announcement last week shook up the intermarket money flow trends, let’s pull back the perspective to the broader trends in money flow in stocks, treasuries, gold, oil, and the US Dollar Index.

Here’s the broader picture of “Risk-On” and “Risk-Off” Money Flow:

Cross Market Intermarket Money Flow Trends Gold Oil Dollar Stocks Treasuries

We see five cross-markets on the intermarket landscape and we’ll note the simple trend or movement of money (money flow) among these selected markets.

Starting with late 2012, money has flown INTO Stocks (SP500), Crude Oil, and (ironically) the US Dollar Index.

Money has flown OUT OF Gold (undeniably) and the 10-Year US Treasury Note (and bonds in general).

May 2013 reflected a recent visual shift in Money Flow to reflect the following:

Money Flow reversed OUT OF Stocks and (temporarily) OUT OF the Dollar.

Crude Oil remained in a visual range, reflecting flat or neutral money flow though a “Bull Trap” occurred just ahead of the recent downside reversal after the Federal Reserve meeting last week.

Money continued to flow OUT OF Bonds/Notes (Treasuries) and Gold.

Let’s zoom in on the recent development before and after last week’s decisive Fed Policy Announcement:

Intermarket Cross Market Intraday Chart after the Federal Reserve Policy Announcement Taper QE3

I highlighted the immediate action around the US Federal Reserve Policy announcement which discussed future “tapering” or reducing the cross-market stimulus provided by the bond/mortgage-backed securities program (QE3).

The intermarket money flow landscape reacted as would be expected from a future reduction in stimulus:

Stocks, Gold, Treasuries, and Oil fell (sharply) while the US Dollar Index rallied powerfully.

For now, we’ll use the upcoming price activity to get a sense of whether we have a lasting shift or reversal in money flow (see broader chart above) or whether the recent sharp shift is merely a ‘correction’ within the context of ongoing trends.

We’ll specifically be monitoring Stocks as they move “Away From” 1,600, Oil as it moves “Away From” $99/$100 and of course Gold moving “Away From” (either on the downside or back above) $1,300.
