Cooling into the weekend

US equity indexes closed broadly lower, sp -22pts (-0.8%) at 2670. The two leaders - Trans/R2K, settled -0.8% and -0.6% respectively. VIX settled +5.7% at 16.88. Near term outlook offers renewed upside to the sp'2740/50s.. so long as the 10yr yield remains <3.00%.




US equities opened in minor chop, and saw weakness into the afternoon. There was a largely failed attempt at a latter day rally. Its notable that despite ending the week on a bearish note, the sp' still saw a net weekly gain of 13pts (0.5%).

With weak equities, volatility climbed for a third consecutive day, settling in the upper 16s.

Another summer day in the latter half of April. Bullish!
