The Financials Hit Their Head & The VIX Soars

All things pointed higher at the open with some beautiful breakouts in the financials. Similar to March, once the financial sector fund ($XLF) touched $25, things failed and went the other way fast. At one point today the VIX was up nearly 50% for the day, which helped me unload my shares in UVXY.

The Qs also had everyone talking as prices started to break below some significant support levels, paving way for some nasty declines in Tech. Here’s a daily look at the Qs closing below the 50 day moving average, but above prior support levels:


As for today’s hybrid movers, there are only a few to note: SWN, NOV, RRC, HAL, CMG, & URRE. (Full Screen)

Let’s see if today was a one day event or if it turns into something a little more flashy. What say you? Over the next month (July), do you see stocks higher or lower?

How are you feeling about the market heading into July?
