Stocks vs. Bonds Near Key Trendline

Like the NYSE Composite, the ratio of the S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) to a diversified basket of bonds (NYSEARCA:AGG) was testing a key area Monday.

If the ratio can push above the downward-sloping blue trendline, it would be a positive development for stocks relative to bonds.

Conversely, if the ratio fails to push/hold above the blue line, it increases the odds that Monday’s stock breakout may be followed by relatively tepid price action.
