Despite some significant down waves this week, most US indexes are (somewhat surprisingly) set for net weekly gains. VIX is reflecting a market that is increasingly confident into the weekend, -16% in the 16.70s. USD remains moderately weak, -0.6% in the DXY 95.90s.
It has been a long week, and barring some closing hour news... I will be back at the close.
notable strength: AAPL +3.1% in the $123s.
weakness: miners, GDX -1.6%... despite Gold trading flat.
