US equity indexes closed moderately mixed, sp +16pts (0.6%) at 2716. The two leaders - Trans/R2K, settled -0.2% and +0.2% respectively. VIX settled -5.9% at 16.85. Near term outlook offers another swing lower, whether putting in a marginally higher low (>2691), or a marginally lower low to around 2671... m/t bullish from either.
Another somewhat mixed day, with a morning low of sp'2691, but then clawing upward into late afternoon. The closing hour saw a new high of 2724, but there was a rather distinct rollover, and it leans bearish for early Friday. Volatility was naturally similarly mixed, with a high of 18.99, but settling in the upper 16s.
Bonus chart: China, monthly
