Market Performance For The Prior Week

Source: YCharts
Disclaimer: Past performance is no guarantee of future performance

The Good News

Economic surprise index creeping back up 

And the leading economic index continues to be a positive signal

And earnings remain strong

And consumers are historically financially healthy

The Bad News

Inflation concerns remain in the limelight

And the debt ceiling conversation is heating up

Resulting in rising yields

The State Of The Market

The rise in yields has hurt tech stocks the most 

And volatility seems like it could be on the rise again

And retail traders continue to play a role in this market

Which probably helps explain why equity flows have been all over the place 

Look at the flows in 2020 & 2021 compared to prior years..

And they are surely involved in this crazy options market  

And this has been happening while liquidity has been on the decline
