…and just like that, it was all over. The S&P 500 ripped up to new record intraday highs at the open this morning – erasing all signs of the dismal economic reality – before plunging (no immediate catalyst for that drop) which was then let with the now ubiquitous armada of liquidity dip-buyers, lifting it back to record highs…BUT the late-day weakness almost left the S&P back below its record close at 3386.15, but the last second saved it…

This completes the end of the shortest bear market in US history.

Of course, the S&P’s resurgence to record highs “proves” that everything will be awesome because markets are “forward-looking” things, right? Just Like in February 2020 and October 2007? All of which is distracting from this shitshow…

Finally, Nasdaq Breadth is diverging (bearishly) from the index.

As Bloomberg notes, the share of members trading above their key 50-day moving average has been on the decline since peaking at 99% at the end of May. This means that the largest of the large-cap tech stocks are driving the momentum, which could be an ominous sign if they become too overvalued. It didn’t end well the last time.
