Weekly Market Report
After the not so great CPI numbers (inflation) were reported this week, SPY declined -4.27%, closing with a bearish engulfing weekly candle, but is still trading above the weekly 200 SMA at 367. (How's that for glass half full?)
The Fear index as represented by VIX was up about 12% to levels not seen since early July of this year.
Gold futures could not hold 1700 as the dollar rallied and the 2 year yield shot up to 3.865%
Bitcoin could not hold 20K for most of the week.
More Fed rate announcements next week with Costco and FedEx earnings.

The US Dollar
The US Dollar continues to defy gravity, rising 0.68% this week. Is this the place to hide?
