Given the StateSide holiday, today begins a BEGOS Markets’ two-day session for Wednesday settlement. At present, Gold is the sole component outside (above) its Neutral Zone for the session; overall, volatility expectedly is light. The S&P 500 pauses with its “live” P/E (futs-adj’d) at 56.1x and Q2 Earnings Season about to commence. By “textbook technicals” the S&P is now overbought through 21 consecutive trading days (i.e. one trading month); the Spoo has yet to succumb to its “Baby Blues” (see Market Trends) having broken below their +80% axis a week ago; and in real-time, the Spoo by Market Values is +229 points above its smooth valuation line. All components enter holiday trading halts starting between 17:00-18:30 GMT until 00:00 GMT.
