Investors shouldn’t get too scared by the recent market pullback, according to Bank of America. The firm believes the recent downside movement is a promising entry point before the market returns to green this summer. April marks the worst month for the S & P 500 since September 2023 as investors’ expectations for rate cuts fell on hot economic data. The broad market index is down 2.8% for the month and, at one point, fell as low as 4,953 from the 5,200 level. As of Tuesday morning, the S & P 500 was last trading around 5,100. According to Bank of America strategist Stephen Suttmeier, this is indicative of “presidential election year seasonality,” during which the S & P 500 experiences a headwind in April and May. .SPX YTD mountain S & P 500 in 2024 “While the correction may not be over yet, the overall chart structure remains constructive, and seasonality supports buying a dip prior to a summer rally,” Suttmeier wrote in a Monday note. The S & P 500 has tested its 5,000 support level, Suttmeier added. He cited tactical resistance, the range at which the index will struggle to climb higher, from 5,109 to 5,146. Volume indicators for the S & P 500 are also suggesting a seasonal pause ahead of upsides in the summer, the strategist said, indicating a bullish breakout and retest pattern for cumulative net up volume. — CNBC’s Michael Bloom contributed to this report.
