US equities opened a little higher, and after a little chop, achieved a decisive bullish breakout in late morning. The breakout offers further near term upside to the 2740/50s, before next opportunity of a cooling wave. We have two downside gaps, and those will arguably need to be filled at some point.
With equity strength, volatility melted lower for a sixth consecutive day, with the VIX settling in the low 13s, the lowest close since Jan'26th.
