Volume Analysis | Flash Market Update 5.22.23
Capital Flows continued their positive trend last week as capital continued to pour into the S&P 500. The generals (NASDAQ 100) again led the charge. But this week, they were able to pull up some of their troops (Russell 2000) with them, as evidenced by a 1.89% weekly gain in the Russell 2000. The Advance-Decline Line also showed marginal improvement while teetering between support and resistance. A healthy $56 billion flowed into the S&P 500, whereas only $23.5 billion flowed out. S&P 500 Capital Weighted Volume also continued its advance higher. The S&P 500 briefly broke above 4200 intraday Thursday and Friday, only to close below the critical resistance level.
With capital flows backing them, the generals are trying to pull the rest of the market higher. However, all investor eyes are on the circus clowns walking the tightrope without a net in Washington. A misstep could be disastrous, a resolution may be the pop needed to break through resistance.
Grace and peace my friends,
