If I were judging merely by the green across my screen so far this morning, although the price moves aren't earth-shatteringly positive, I'd say somebody's talking, or cease-firing, or doing something positive with regard to the situation that presently dominates the headlines.
Well, no such luck. You might say, other than Ukraine declaring a state of emergency and instructing all citizens to leave Russia, and the cancelling of a planned meeting between the US Secretary of State and the Russian Foreign Minister, and social media reports of "armored columns in tactical deployments approaching the Russia-Ukraine border"-- clearly, those aren't positive "other thans" -- that there's been a bit of a lull, relative to the past few days.
Well, I guess it's a stretch to say there's a "lull" in the news...
As I type, that market green-ness has dissipated a bit.
As for the technical picture, per the SP500 daily chart below, the index stopped cold (at least for the moment) on what has been a well-tested, and supportive over the past several months, support line (in red):
"Governments rarely understand how the measures they take to shore up certainty, usually by fixing the price of something, actually create the uncertainty for the investor that repels capital."
Shall we say that via a number of measures central banks have been indirectly fixing the price of credit, and influencing the price of stocks, for many years now?
Have a great day!
