Daily U.S. Market Update

March 4, 2024 at 9:15 a.m. EDT

Michael P. Reinking, CFA
Sr. Market Strategist

Last week the S&P 500 ended higher by just under 1%, its 16th positive weekly close in the last 18 weeks, which hasn’t been done since the 1970’s. Last week there was broad participation with the equal weight version of the index slightly outperforming. The Russell 2k ended the week up ~3% closing at its highest level in about 2 years. Similar to the last couple of weeks, markets have gotten off to a slow start ahead of some big potential catalysts in the coming days including testimony by Fed Chair Powell before Congress and the February employment data. As we head to print major indices are mixed though we are still seeing some expansion of breadth. The S&P 500 market cap weighted index is down slightly but the equal weight version of the index is up 0.3%. The Russell 2k is outperforming again today up ~0.5%.

Trends in options trading

Retail participation in options market trading rose sharply during the pandemic, peaking at 48% in July 2022. While it has bounced around since then, it hit 45% in July 2023 (Chart 1). This data suggests that substantial retail options trading is here for the foreseeable future.

U.S. equity options market models

U.S. listed equity options exchanges offer customers a wide array of market models to meet different investors’ and firms’ needs. NYSE American and NYSE Arca, now both trading on NYSE’s world class Pillar Matching engine, cover the two main market models. NYSE Arca leads price/time exchanges’ market share. NYSE American offers customers price improvement auctions with a pro-rata model.

2023: The Year in ETPs

2023 was an exceptional year for global equity ETPs. Until the fourth quarter, profits were limited generally to a few tech companies, but gains broadened in Q4. We review fund flows, returns and activity in multiple equity ETP categories.
