03 May 2023 – 10:05 Central Euro Time

New bank struggles boffed the S&P by -1.2% yesterday; however at present, the Spoo is marginally higher, plus the Bond, Euro and Swiss Franc are above their Neutral Zones; below same is Oil, and session volatility is mostly mild ahead of today’s FOMC +25bp rate rise (due at 18:00 GMT). Yesterday’s S&P MoneyFlow was only about a third as weak as the Index itself, evidence of the selling not being materially fear-based. Gold’s high yesterday (2029) was 60 points away from its All-Time High (2089), price reaching its best level since 14 April. Ahead of the Fed, the Econ Baro looks to April’s ADP Employment data and the ISM (Svc) Index.
