Volume Analysis | Flash Market Update – 2.5.24

Although the S&P 500 price index reached all-time highs, capital flows were not as decisive. Capital inflows ended slightly above average at just under $52 billion. However, capital outflows also exceeded average levels, with over $48 billion exiting S&P 500 index members. Overall, S&P 500 Capital Weighted Volume and Dollar Volume both continue to set new highs, albeit at a slower pace compared to price, in contrast to the earlier phase of the rally.

For the week, the S&P 500 led the way with a 1.38% increase, closely followed by the generals (NDX 100), up 1.27%, while the troops (iShares Russell 2000 ETF, IWM) experienced a retreat of -0.80%. Market breadth also displayed less robustness; the NYSE AD Line began the week strongly only to finish at the same level it started. Although the AD Line remains above trend, it is broadening, indicating both higher highs and lower lows. Similarly, the troops, as represented by IWM, broke last week’s highs only to conclude the week lower, establishing a new weekly range. S&P 500 support levels are situated at 4800, 4700, with major support resting at 4600.

Grace and peace my friends,
