US equity indexes closed moderately mixed, sp +1pt at 2388. The two leaders - Trans/R2K, settled +0.3% and -0.2% respectively. VIX settled -4.5% at 10.36. Near term outlook offers choppy upside into the weekend/monthly close. Broadly, a push to 2425/50 zone looks a given by mid June.
It was a day of moderate chop in equity land, although its notable that the Nasdaq comp' broke yet another new historic high of 6050.
Volatility remains broadly subdued, with the VIX stuck in the sub-teens. The upper end of the gap zone of 12-14.50 looks out of range until at least late next week... just ahead of round'2 of the French election.

Nasdaq comp', monthly2
This remains a powerfully bullish market.
Goodnight from London
