US equities have cooled from a morning high of sp'2072 to 2063. VIX is similarly offering a turn, from a new cycle low of 13.06. Equity bears should remain desperate for a marginally red close.. with VIX back in the 14s. That sure won't be easy, but cyclically, the setup now favours the bears.
*notable weakness, Gold -$15, with the miner ETF of GDX -2.9% ... but more on those later.
Things are indeed 'marginally interesting' with a natural turn from 11am.
Overall though.. I'll take things seriously once I see VIX 14s, with sp'2040s. That would give initial clarity that a retrace might finally be underway.
In any case... a red daily close is clearly now viable.
time for lunch
