Last week was capped off with a sharp rally into the close and today’s “losses” are reversing a small portion of that. Both the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones ended the week up over 2% and are now up ~10% YTD. We have entered into the slow grind higher phase of the market rally with the S&P 500 up in 6 of the previous 7 sessions with the only interruption a 0.1% pullback along the way.
