Stock Market Update Friday March 15, 2024

Stock Market Update Friday March 15, 2024 The Ides of March and options expiration posed a challenging scenario for the bulls in the financial markets. Both the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 experienced declines, with the former dropping by 0.7% and the latter by 1.2%. This downturn resulted in both indices ending the week in negative territory for the second consecutive week.

Away From Stocks: Treasury yields continued to face downward pressure at the short end, with the two-year yield climbing another four basis points to 4.72%, while the long bond saw a slight decline to 4.43%. WTI crude maintained its position at $81 a barrel, while gold experienced a minor decline to $2,158 per ounce. Additionally, the VIX settled near 14.5 after briefly spiking above 15 intraday.

"Veni, vidi, vici." (I came, I saw, I conquered.) Beware the Ides of March. The Ides of March, let's heed the cautionary tales of history while navigating the markets. In Roman times, the Ides of March marked a turning point, famously associated with Julius Caesar's assassination and subsequent political upheaval. Similarly, in the stock market, it's crucial to remain vigilant and adaptable to changing conditions. Just as Caesar ignored warnings of impending danger, investors must not ignore potential market risks. Let's use this moment to reassess our strategies, stay informed, and remain prepared for whatever market challenges may lie ahead. Happy trading, and may we all emerge unscathed from the Ides of March!
