Slow motion.  US equities did very little today.  Capital flow was surprisingly normal at 102%.  There weren’t any new developments on the trade/tariff front and the world was pretty unch’d with respect to financial issues.  It felt like investors were passing time.  The S&P traded higher over most of the session so maybe that’s a sign that the bulls have a slight advantage?

I wouldn’t put too much weight in that theory but I throw it out there because there is little else to discuss today.

Here are a few other things worth mentioning and then let’s call it a day.

  • Yields climbed across the curve again
  • Marijuana stocks are zooming higher (reminds me of the old dot-com action)
  • Crude rose above $70 again

What does it all mean?  Probably nothing.

See you tomorrow,
