From Chris Ciovacco: Uncertainties created by President Trump’s curbs on travel and immigration contributed to a selloff in stocks Monday. The monthly S&P 500 chart below allows us to filter out some of the day-to-day volatility.

As of this writing, three positive developments remain in place: (1) the breakout above the multiple-year consolidation box (point A), (2) a retest of the breakout (point B), and (3) a bullish MACD crossover near point C.

A December 2 analysis provides some historical context (1993-2017) for the bullish monthly MACD cross shown above.

Trump Moves On Regulatory Reform

As outlined on November 11, reducing regulations could have a positive impact on earnings. Monday, President Trump moved on regulatory reform. From Reuters:

President Donald Trump signed an order on Monday that will seek to dramatically pare back federal regulations by requiring agencies to cut two existing regulations for every new rule introduced. “This will be the biggest such act that our country has ever seen. There will be regulation, there will be control, but it will be normalized control,” Trump said as he signed the order in the Oval Office, surrounded by a group of small business owners.

The Vanguard 500 Index Fund (NYSE:VOO) was trading at $208.41 per share on Monday afternoon, down $1.84 (-0.88%). Year-to-date, VOO has gained 1.51%, versus a 1.55% rise in the benchmark S&P 500 index during the same period.
