High Low Friday – 2/28/2020

Here are some of the most noteworthy new highs and lows across the markets for Friday, February 28, 2020.

These are but a few of the highs and lows resulting from a truly historic week in the markets.

The most important index, the Value Line Geometric Composite, is testing the most important line in the equity market…again. Will the breakout level of the former multi-decade triple highs hold — or will it be a massive false breakout?  $VLG $VALUG


Similarly, UK’s $FTSE is testing the breakout level of its former highs spanning multiple decades.


The rush into bonds pushed the 10-Year U.S. Treasury Yield $TNX to all-time lows.


Fear abounds as the 1-month:3-month S&P 500 Volatility Index Ratio ($VIX:$VXV) moved to its highest reading ever outside of the financial crisis.


Lastly, an index that we use as a Risk Barometer on the market, the S&P Small-Cap Pure Value Index $SPSPV, has fallen to 4-year lows. It also topped out on December 31, creating a striking divergence that allowed us to reduce our investment risk in recent weeks.
