Market Breaks Support

Market State 2- Bullish: The S&P 500 remains in Market State 2 despite last week’s rollercoaster.  Overall, the market was relatively flat last week, only falling around -0.30%.  Last week did however, end with -1.23%, -1.79%, +0.80%, and +1.42% days. That is 3 days beyond +/-1.00% that resulted in a flat week.
