(Bloomberg) — Spiraling losses on Wall Street are now snowballing into forced asset liquidation, according to Bank of America Corp. strategists.

The NYSE Composite Index, which includes US stocks, depositary receipts and real estate investment trusts, has broken multiple technical support levels including its 200-week moving average, the 14,000 mark, as well as 2018 and 2020 highs. Now accumulated losses could be forcing funds to sell more assets to raise cash, accelerating the selloff, according to Bank of America.

The “best Wall Street barometer” is breaking down, strategists led by Michael Hartnett wrote in a note on Thursday, keeping a tactically bearish view until panic selling forces a central bank intervention.
Stocks are falling again Friday, with the S&P 500 heading toward its third straight quarter of losses for the first time since 2009 and the Nasdaq 100 Stock Index for the first time in 20 years. Investors are bracing for more pain. Stocks have been tumbling amid concerns the Federal Reserve will hurl the economy into a recession while tightening policy, weighing on earnings in the process.
“Markets stop panicking when central banks start panicking,” Hartnett said, adding that he expects the S&P 500 to drop to 3,333, forcing a “policy panic” possibly around the G20 meeting in November. He predicts an equity rally after that, but says the US market won’t touch a “big low” until the first quarter of next year, when a recession and a credit shock will lead to a peak in yields, dollar and the Fed’s hawkishness.
BofA strategists said to “bite” into the S&P 500 at the 3,300 level — about a 9% decline from the latest close, “nibble” at 3,600 and “gorge” at 3,000. Hartnett and his team added that a drop of 20% below 200-day moving average has been a good entry point back into stocks in the past 100 years.

MARK HULBERT It’s premature to declare the bear market is over, but it’s not too early to start constructing your buy list of stocks for when conditions are more favorable. That’s the conclusion I draw from an analysis of recent insider transactions from Nejat Seyhun, a finance professor at the University of Michigan and one of academia’s leading experts on the behavior of corporate insiders.
Investors believe the feedback loop between U.S. stocks and bonds will likely be a key factor in determining whether the gyrations that have rocked markets this year continue into the last months of 2022. With the third quarter over, both assets have seen painful sell-offs – the S&P 500 is down nearly 25% year-to-date and the ICE BofA Treasury Index has fallen by around 13%. The twin declines are the worst since 1938, according to BoFA Global Research.

(Reuters) -Federal Reserve policymakers, who have driven U.S. borrowing costs up faster this year than at any time since the 1980s, got one less reason to slow down on Friday after a government report showed inflation continues to run at a red-hot pace. The personal consumption expenditures price index, the measure by which the Fed targets 2% inflation, rose 6.2% in August from a year earlier, down from 6.4% in July, the Commerce Department reported. Even before the report the Fed was widely expected to deliver a fourth straight 75-basis-point interest rate hike at its next policy meeting in November.

There’s one thing we can all agree on: Tua Tagovailoa had no business being on the field. The Miami Dolphins quarterback was taken away on a stretcher with a concussion during a prime-time game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday, an especially frightening incident because it came a mere four days after another hard hit against the Buffalo Bills left him wobbly. ”I’m sick,” former NFL linebacker Emmanuel Acho said in a video posted to Twitter.
