US equities closed broadly lower, sp -19pts @ 2047. The two leaders - Trans/R2K, settled +0.6% and -1.6% respectively. Near term outlook offers a primary target of 2000/1990s.. with an equally valid H/S scenario target of the 1970/60s.
closing hour action: increasing chop, but with a new intra low of 2040.
So much for the Monday gains.. almost fully negated.
The rest of this week should get real interesting.
Yes.. opex will usually (85/95%) of the time bode in favour to the equity bulls, but, there are exceptions.
Last week's candle was red.. with a clear spike, and (in theory) a weekly close around the giant psy' level 2K would actually be somewhat natural.
more later... on the VIX
