All The Stars

US equity indexes closed significantly higher, sp +33pts (1.3%) at 2663. The two leaders - Trans/R2K, settled 1.1% and 1.2% respectively. VIX settled -7.1% at 14.77. Near term outlook offers a challenge of the upper side of the giant triangle... around sp'2720.




US equities opened moderately lower, with yet another test of the 200dma at sp'2615. There was an opening reversal, with equities powering back upward. There was certainly some degree of short-stop cascade, but also a case of 'bullish chasers' piling in.

Volatility saw an opening high of 16.92, but was naturally ground lower as equities powered back upward. This was notably the fourth consecutive net weekly decline in the VIX, and is indicative of underlying capital market confidence.

For the week....

The sp' saw a net weekly decline of -6pts (0.2%). Broader price structure is a giant triangle, which is inherently bullish. A break above the upper side (currently 2720s) appears a given, whether next week, or not until June. Original big target of 2950/3047 still looks due.
