Intraday Update for Stocks #1
The finish to the regular session and overnight (what probably turns out as) dead cat bounce doesn’t inspire very short-term confidence in the S&P 500. Credit markets went through a steep risk-off turn, value got hammered, and tech didn’t rejoice either. The bulls look like pausing here as a very minimum for today – let’s take open long profits off the table (at market, which is 4,546).
Crude oil got hurt from the inventory build, but the $81 area held overnight, natural gas declined in sympathy while copper finally registered strong overnight upswing. The CRB Index is entering a brief consolidation (mistakenly spooked that perhaps the Fed would not only taper, but hint at something more soon), and the dollar is going again nowhere.
