Inclined to lean weak

US equities closed moderately higher, sp +12pts at 2394 (intra high 2395). The two leaders - Trans/R2K, settled higher by 1.0% and 0.7% respectively. VIX settled -9.2% at 10.93. Near term outlook offers renewed weakness, with a primary target of sp'2348 and Nasdaq comp'5910. More broadly... nothing has changed, as the 2600s appear highly probable before year end.




It was a day for the equity bulls, as the recovery that began Thursday morning from sp'2352 continued. Its notable that today's high of 2395 was a mere 10pts shy of last week's historic high. Market volatility was naturally still continuing to cool, with the VIX falling back into the 10s.

Despite today, near term outlook remains unchanged.The US market will be cyclically inclined to increasingly lean weak..

Katie agrees with yours truly

Watching the breakfast show on clown finance TV this morning (I rarely do), there was an appearence from Katie Stockton. Her outlook was effectively the same as I hold. Short term weakness to around sp'2340, but broader mid term upside to 2640 (my year end target is 2683).

I would refer anyone who didn't read my weekend post to go look.

Summer arrives.. finally.
