                        Major assets are reflecting deepening concerns about the durability of bull run for stocks which will mark its 10th year in about a month.

                        What’s our damage so far?

                        The bullish dynamic for risk assets on Wall Street is beginning to unravel, clearly. Blame it on trade-war fears, at least partly sparked by a May 5 tweet from President Donald Trump, or peg it to worries that the global economy is facing a pronounced slowdown. In any case, major assets are reflecting deepening concerns about the durability of bull run for stocks, which will mark its 10th year in about a month.

                        Here is how the market is setting up:

                        Nasdaq nears correction territory

                        The Nasdaq Composite Index (COMP) stands down 7.6% from its record on May 3. Most market participants view a decline of at least 10% from a recent high as representing a correction. S&P 500 threatens to fall below 200 day.?

                        The S&P 500 (SPX) is trading at or near its 200-day moving average, at 2,776.04, as of Wednesday afternoon trade. A breach below that point would represent a longer-term bearish momentum shift for the broad-market index. Market technicians tend to view moving averages as the demarcation between bullish and bearish momentum in an asset.

                        The exchange-traded iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) has gained 4.4% since May 3, compared with a negative 5.5% return for the S&P 500 and a negative 5.2% return for the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA)

                        The 10-year Treasury note yield fell below the 3-month note, deepening an inversion of the yield curve, which measures the difference between the yield on the longer-dated Treasury and its shorter-dated counterpart.

                        Such rate inversions are rare because investors tend to demand higher yields for extending loans over a longer period. Therefore when rates invert it is viewed as a signal that an economic recession is in the offing. The 3-month/10-year inversion currently stands at the most severe since 2007.
