First week of the August option cycle turned out to be pretty bullish as the $SPY closed solidly above the 50 SMA. The last time a weekly close came in above the 50 SMA¬† was back in April. I didn’t notice any fireworks or sirens that went off but anticipate that if the 200 SMA were to be overtaken there might be some fanfare. Hope you have a good weekend and enjoy the links.
