SPX - daily

VIX - daily


US equities opened on a weak note, and whilst there was an opening reversal, that was itself reversed, with the SPX seeing choppy cooling into the mid afternoon. The late afternoon saw a recovery, with a few indexes turning net higher.

Volatility was mixed, the VIX printing 22.07, but settling -5.5% to 19.19, as the mainstream calmed down, ahead of the long weekend.
