COMMENTARY
Last Friday was a “quadruple witching day” for the US market.  With something like $1.1 trillion of S&P 500 options expiring, volatility was a given.  Unfortunately price movement was to the downside, and not even the mid-week, Fed rate hike rally could help.

Price/volume and OEW are both leaning towards a downtrend, but nothing is completely confirmed at this point.  Until the market shows some signs of strength, it’s best to remain cautious and protect your capital.
