US equities closed somewhat mixed, sp +2pts @ 2126 (intra high 2128). The two leaders - Trans/R2K, settled +0.7% and -0.4% respectively. Near term outlook offers a retrace to the sp'2090/80 zone - along with VIX 15/16s, before renewed upside into August.
... and another week comes to a close in the twisted casino.
We've climbed from sp'2044 to 2128 in just six trading days, with the VIX getting crushed from 20.05 to 11.77. A retrace is arguably due across next Mon-Tue.
Have a good weekend
