March 27, 2020 – In late February, there was a widespread, simultaneous recognition by investors that the COVID-19 (aka, 'the coronavirus') pandemic that was sweeping the world and would have a significant, negative economic impact. US stocks subsequently sold off at a pace that has set historic records. This weekend, investors find themselves a little over one month out from the beginning of that selloff – and we can make a few assessments from this distance.
An all-time daily closing high (ATH) in the S&P 500 (SPY) was set on February 19 at 336.36, and the closing low of the selloff (to-date) occurred on March 23 at 222.95 – a decline of -33.72%. Since that near-term low, the S&P 500 then surged about 17% over three days from Tuesday to Thursday (March 24-26) last week. However, investors should not chase this short-term rally, as it only amounts to an oversold bounce – one that is likely to lure many speculative novices to more financial losses, in a market that may already be heading lower.
