With 2017 ending the same way it started, at all-time new highs, investors are now asking whether the trend will remain their friend or whether it is ready to end. Last year was an impressive year for equities as the S&P 500 index generated a new record high in roughly one out of every four trading days. Equally as impressive, the broader market strung together 64 weeks without a 2% drawdown and only registered four single day sessions with losses totaling 1% or more throughout the year. Lastly, volatility remained stubbornly low last year and the CBOE Volatility index reached record low levels. Thus, you can clearly see the trend has been a friend that has not let us down to this point!Market internals remain strong as our intermediate-term measures of market breadth, 40-week Technique indicator and 26-week New Highs indicator, remain in "buy" positions. The NYSE A/D line is also printing new highs in lockstep with the broader market while the averages (INDU and TRAN) continue to confirm each other per Dow Theory. However, we don't believe 2018 will advance in the same linear path as 2017 and expect direction will appear more like "a hop, a drop, and a pop" as higher interest rates shake things up in 2018 by ultimately reversing a secular downtrend. We reiterate our year-end 2018 price objective of 2,850 on the S&P 500.

By May the new FOMC will have settled in and have provided projections as to where it sees both the economy and policy for the rest of the year. We will also have a good idea what has happened to financial conditions, inflation, and GDP in Q4 and whether another policy move had been made early in 2018. This information should allow an assessment as to both where policy is likely to go as far as interest rates are concerned for the rest of the year, as well as where and when the Committee is likely to stop.
