The TSX suffered considerably this week as the fear of a commodity blowout sent many investors to the exit. As a sample of this broad selling the Stock Trends distribution of Bullish stocks shifted considerably toward Weak Bullish. The S&P/TSX Composite, the big cap S&P/TSX 60 Index, as well as the S&P/TSX Midcap and Smallcap Indexes all lit up us Weak Bullish this week. Most telling of the breadth of the selloff is that 28% of trending stocks are now Weak Bullish. This is an important moment for the TSX as investors will look for a signal that the commodity cycle, while partially deflated, is still in swing.
