Market Report Where do we go from here?



Todd Horwitz Chief Strategist

Be Prepared not Surprised.


As markets enter the 2nd quarter, there are many questions to be answered. With OPEC+ cutting production and Crude Oil spiking higher, what will happen with inflation. The odds are high that OPEC will cut once more before Memorial Day.

Then there is the FED, what will they do with interest rates? The street is betting that they will stop hiking, however with inflation on the move up again they may continue. There is no way to know, even the Fed Funds rate is confused.

With job cuts and layoffs, it’s hard to imagine a major rally. Add to that income is far under the rate of inflation, debt is high and credit cards are maxed out. The 2nd quarter should be interesting.

Call Buyer took over the top spot once again, followed by premium sellers, Bear Puts, Bear Put and Bear Call Spreads. Even the option markets are confused and under stress. The VIX has fallen back to the lows.

The bulls were buying TLT, SPXW, AI, TSLA, and AMC. The bears were selling CVNA, SPY, XLF, AMD, and QQQ. Nasdaq very strong followed by weakness everywhere else.

As traders and investors, we have one thing to remember, follow the trend of the market. Be patient disciplined and leave your emotions out. The most important thing to remember is money management and self-control.
