Monday's market selloff marked a sustainable bottom and stocks should trend higher from here, Fundstrat's Tom Lee says
- Monday's market selloff that saw the major averages decline more than 2% should represent a bottom in

- "Equities are now severly oversold, and in past setups like this, set the stage for a sustainable bottom," Lee said.

Monday's "old-fashioned blood bath" was driven by a series of headlines including a lack of progress on a fiscal stimulus deal, a record surge in daily COVID-19 cases over the weekend, and a weak earnings report from German tech company SAP.But Monday's selloff led to stocks becoming "severely oversold," and in similar situations in the past, this set the market up for a "sustainable bottom," according to Fundstrat.
And while there may still be a few days left of messy trading, the S&P 500 has continued to hold two key support levels: 3,224 and 3,363. This suggests that the uptrend in stocks is still intact, according to Fundstrat.From here, investors should expect that the tilt towards stocks is "risk-on" as a near 1,000-point drop in the Dow Jones industrial average just one week prior to the presidential election "sounds like lots of bad news priced in," Fundstrat concluded.
