Sentiment Trader told   ==> our VIP MEMBERS here <==  Fund managers see 'cracks in the bull' market as trade war fears escalate

Professional investors see global growth prospects at their lowest level since Brexit as fears of a trade war surge, according to the latest Bank of America Merrill Lynch Fund Manager Survey.

On a broad level, the monthly gauge shows waning confidence in the bull market even as money continues to flow into stocks. Low-volatility bets that had reflected the market's benign nature have faded from popularity after detonating in early February, while more investors move to defensive positions, including a rush to banks.

"Cracks in the bull case are starting to emerge, with fund managers citing concerns over trade, stagflation and leverage," Michael Hartnett, chief investment strategist at BofAML, said in a statement. "Investors have yet to act on these fears, however, as rates and earnings are keeping the bulls bullish."

Indeed, the market has managed to steady itself after an initial inflation scare sent major averages into correction territory. The S&P 500 is up about 5 percent since bottoming Feb. 8 but overall had gained just 1.5 percent for the year heading into Tuesday trading.

 This S&P chart could be one to watch See how we are in trouble but still in a rising upwards channel -- See the chart below.... 

Our Members here => VIP members here    Were told that, Funds have continued to attract investor money, to the tune of $151.7 billion this year, according to BofAML data through March 14. Cash levels among fund managers edged lower in March from 4.7 percent to 4.6 percent.

But worries are beginning to crop up.

Fears of a trade war, dormant since the early days of the Trump administration, have re-emerged since the president slapped tariffs on imported steel and aluminum earlier this month. The threat of a wider conflict topped the list of fears with 30 percent of respondents, while inflation was next at 23 percent followed by global growth at 16 percent.

It's the first time trade concerns topped the list since January 2017.

Those results mirror the most recent CNBC Fed Survey, in which trade also topped concerns, though 48 percent of respondents said they generally approve of how President Donald Trump is handling the economy.

In the BofAML survey, 87 percent of fund managers said protectionism would boost inflation and stagflation, the latter a term for sluggish growth with higher prices.

On the bright side, investors are optimistic about corporate profits, with 58 percent expecting global earnings per share to rise by more than 10 percent in the next 12 months. S&P 500 earnings are projected to jump 17 percent in the second quarter, according to FactSet.

Fund managers also are a little less afraid of rising bond yields. Survey respondents indicated a 3.6 percent yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note would trigger a move from stocks into bonds. A number of bond market veterans, led by DoubleLine's Jeffrey Gundlach, have put the danger zone closer to 3 percent.

2 Tech Stocks With Explosive Growth Potential - Here are 2 Tech Stocks With Explosive Growth Potential

Our readers have been impressed by our accurate predictions lately, but want to find out 2 Tech Stocks With Explosive Growth Potential in 2018.

Number #1

Logitech International SA (USA) (NASDAQ:LOGI) is one of those companies that hides in plain sight because what it makes is so ubiquitous. LOGI started in Switzerland in 1981, making mice for computers. Since then, it has expanded its product line to a wide range of consumer computer products, from keyboards and gaming to smart houses and home entertainment.

Through its focused approach to the growing marketplace, LOGI products are now available in more than 100 countries and Logitech stock sports a $5 billion market cap. LOGI’s strength is in its ability to recognize new trends. It then looks to innovate its core products to serve the new trend. And it has managed to do that for decades.

In late January it reported Q3 FY2017 earnings and they didn’t disappoint. Revenue for the quarter was up 7%, operating income was up 34% and retail sales were up a record 13%.

What’s more, LOGI guided higher for all of FY2017, expecting 12% to 13% sales growth for the year, which means Q4 should be very strong. The stock is up 43% in the past six months. No surprise there.

PENNANT pattern is showing on the logitech chart, after a sideways moment for the last 6 months. We would think Logitech could move up to 42 if a break of this pennant is seen! . 

Number #2

Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) is the leading light in the data visualization sector. In the early days, NVDA simply made high-end computer graphics cards that were very popular with gamers and big research labs. But it wasn’t long until demand started cropping up in a number of industries.

Big Data uses data visualization to allow people to see trends and patterns in the massive amount of numbers that are crunched. Self-driving vehicles (and next gen human piloted vehicles as well) need incredibly fast and accurate information processed to function safely.

And yes, even gaming has reached a new level. With virtual reality and augmented reality set to become the industry standard, high quality, fast processing and rendering is crucial. And NVDA is there to meet the demand on all counts.

The stock is on a tear for the past year, but given the fact that the more tech touches our lives in new and different ways, it is one more opportunity for NVDA. And that doesn’t even take into account the massive amount potential in all the markets it’s already a key player in.

With buyers flurrying to the Nvidia chart in recent times, we have an ASCENDING TRIANGLE on our hands, which means that in an uptrend ASCENDING TRIANGLE patterns usually resolve or breakout to the upside, and you can see the price action is already doing that with a target of about 270 on the upside, is what we could acheive.

vix chart update - vix chart

vix chart update - vix chart

what the vix chart update - vix chart? What this all about..... See below. 


Sentiment Trader told   ==> our VIP MEMBERS here <==  The S&P 500 Index could end the year higher, but it's going to take the winding road to get there, that would be the best way to explain in. Lets today look at the VIX chart. 

Volatility returned to the market in recent weeks after abnormally low levels through last year. This should continue in the coming months.

"The volatility that we saw was elevated, We don't think we're going to stay at that high a level, but there is a bid to volatility at this point in time, so we need to get use to that in 2018. 

The Volatility index (VIX) surged more than 100 percent on Feb. 5, its biggest one-day move ever, when the Dow Jones Industrial Average made a 1,175 point drop, its biggest point drop. And since the beginning of February, the Dow has moved within a nearly 3,000-point range and the S&P 500 a 300-point range.

Since then, the Dow has fallen 3.5 percent and the S&P 500 1.7 percent. Harvey sees more volatile moves ahead.

"Now the question is, where is that natural level? Is it at 12 on the VIX? Is it at 14?"  SENTIMENT TRADER think it's at mid-teens… As we look forward we think we'll see a lot more spikes this year than we did last year."

When you look at the vix chart we have gone from nothing to a bit spike over 30 so volatility is back in a big way so the market will see big ups and downs this year, last time this happened.  

Watch the VIX chart in 2018 -- See the chart below.... 

Our Members here => VIP members here    were told Those kinds of levels are par for the course in a normal year. But the return to normality has been a shock to the system for investors accustomed to 2017 levels when volatility was low and the waters were calm.

The VIX hit an all-time low in November, and dropped more than 21 percent in 2017. The S&P 500 moved by at least 1 percent just 8 trading days for the full year.

With volatility returning, there are a few key levels to watch.

one level to watch is  2,700 is an important level, We've held that level pretty well, and the benchmark to close the year above those records, he added.

As volatility returns to the market, we will watch one sector Utilities.

They've under-performed by about 20 percent over the last five or six months, With the higher level of volatility bid, we think there's going to be a bid for risk-aversion longer term so that's an nice theme for us going forward.
