It was a bearish week for most US equity indexes, with net weekly changes ranging from -1.7% (Transports), -1.3% (Nasdaq comp'), -0.8% (Dow), -0.3% (SPX), to +0.5% (NYSE comp').
Lets take our regular look at five of the main US indexes
Four US equity indexes settled net lower for the week, with one net higher.
The Transports lead the way lower, with the NYSE comp' resilient.
The Nasdaq comp' broke a new historic high.
More broadly, all five US equity indexes are currently trading above their respective monthly 10MA.
A very busy week is ahead, with the first look at Q2 GDP, and another truck load of earnings. We can expect further Corona related headlines, especially in terms of the vaccine candidates. Its also likely we'll see some further 'developments' in US/China relations.

FOMC announcement (2pm), with Powell (2.30pm). No change in rates or the ongoing QE program can be expected. Its likely that Powell will again state the Fed's support for further fiscal stimulus, and that the fed will do 'whatever is necessary' to bolster the US economy (or rather... the equity market).
