  • Long $USDCNH was one of my favorite setups for the 2nd quarter btw. I maintain, I like the fundamentals; but the greenback's recent battering needs to relent before this can perform

Focus Chart of the Day: S&P 500

Price & Time: Volatile April?

US equity indices have responded well to the positive period we highlighted a couple of weeks back. Call it what you will, but the indices have had a very clear tendency to rally or at least attempt one as the end of a quarter approaches. With ‘triple witching’ now out of the way we will see if this clears the path for a more meaningful push higher. A convergence of Gann and Fibonacci levels between 2108 and 2125 in the S&P 500 has proven formidable resistance over the past month or so and traction above this zone is now needed to set off any sort of ‘run for the roses’ into the end of the month. However, we would caution against getting too positive on the market should this occur as April looks quite interesting from a cyclical perspective as a variety of key relationships will be converging throughout the month. We think at a minimum this should lead to a decent uptick in volatility. Only aggressive weakness below 2040 would signal that the higher volatility period we are expecting in April has already begun.
