Harvey of Wells Fargo says stocks may continue to be “oversold” over the next few days

Chris Harvey of Wells Fargo expects stocks to continue their upward movement.

“The rise in short rates, retail skew, and Bank of England actions suggest that stocks will continue to bounce back oversold over the next few days,” he said in a note to clients on Wednesday.

Stocks hit new lows earlier in the week, with the S&P 500 reaching a new bear market. The selling was triggered by the Federal Reserve’s latest interest rate decision last week, which some investors believe drove the market into oversold conditions.

With the cost of capital rising and prices hovering near record levels, consensus is growing that a Fed-caused recession is inevitable, Harvey said.

“We look at the recession like a car accident,” he wrote. “You never know how bad it will be, but there is almost no ‘better than expected’ outcome – so policymakers need to be careful what they wish for.”
