Market Blast – March 18, 2024

The Fuse

There may be optimism this week as some occasions and the Fed assembly will assist stoke patrons to step up and purchase shares once more. The development continues to be up long run however the quick time period strikes lately have been uneven.

March vix futures expire this week as April will turn into the entrance month.

Breadth was optimistic Friday however that was possibly the one saving grace of the day. We can not actually spin the motion positively because the markets fell sharply. Breadth is usually a great reader of the development however even optimistic breadth can masks what is admittedly occurring underneath the hood. It appears as if there’s some knocking and pinging occurring proper now.

Quantity expanded as we might have anticipated on an expiration Friday. We’ll see if there’s some spillover immediately of the heavy distribution however extra importantly is that if we see extra distribution this coming week. A catalyst could possibly be the Fed assembly midweek.

VIX spiked up after which got here down however put/calls rose once more, and take a look at the purple in these ticks. Inexperienced within the Nasdaq finish of day however value motion was nonetheless fairly poor. Massive week for the internals arising.
