  • From GmbhQuanify:

    After the February-March crash, the S&P 500 has been recovering a great part of its losses. The index is pressuring the May’s highs above the 100 SMA on the daily chart. As buyers stay firmly in charge, a run to the 3000 figure appears imminent. #sp500 #SPX

  • From LynAldenContact:

    @Aemiliannus Over the past 2-2.5 years, the S&P 500 has been relatively flat, a poor return environment in this strong dollar period. SPX was 2800 on Jan 2018. Sharp dollar spikes result in equity market sell-offs. Sideways dollar markets just provide headwinds against SPX performance.
