Cumulative TICK Confirms Market In Far Worse Shape Than Even Broad Index Will Have You Believe

A comparison of the intraday cumulative TICK and the S&P 500 indicates that even with repeated stick saves of the S&P around 1,125, the behind the scenes truth is that the selling is actually persistently ongoing and in fact intensifying throughout the day. Cumulative TICK is now at day lows after rolling over without slowing, particularly during times when the index allegedly bounced as the PPT, algos, or Central Bank buyers of currencies stepped in to prevent a May 6-like rout. Our advice, as always, is to stay away from this broken casino, as we are confident that the reality of the market is about to catch up with the market value indicators.
