Weekly Market Report
Note: In the graphs below: Red is the 200 EMA, Green is the 50 EMA, and Blue is the 20 EMA.
Weekly Market Report - SPY had a good week up 3.28%. It held the 20 EMA (blue line) and pierced the 50 EMA (green line), then seemingly got rejected at the 400.18 level. While these are encouraging signs for the week overall, we still remain in an overall downtrend so please proceed with caution.

Finviz Weekly Market Heatmap & Relative Sector Performance
Consumer Cyclical, Industrials, Technology, and Energy, Basic Materials, Financials, and Real Estate led this week, while Communication Services, Utilities, and Health Care lagged on a relative basis.
Yields are lower, but still inverted
All yields ended lower this week, below the psychological 3% level. The 30 year now has the highest yield by a small margin, but the 2 year is still earning more than the 10 year. Watch for increasing volatility in the yield curve this week with an FOMC statement on Wednesday 7/27.
The VIX was down about 13% this week, back to lows not seen since Will Smith slapped Chris Rock in April. The Fear & Greed Index moved from 26 to 39 (less fearful).
Get your sleep this weekend, we've got Microsoft, Alphabet, Apple, Meta, Amazon, Ford, Shopify, Visa, P&G and more reporting next week which could have huge implications for the overall market.
