S&P 500 (SPY) Report – 7/22/22

Good morning traders!

The S&P 500 ($SPY) is trading near yesterday’s close. Let’s get into it…

With the $SPY breaking out of the trading channel it had been bound in for several weeks, the market squeezed higher Thursday; closing right below $399. Despite the market’s only partial recovery, investors are still worried due to the situation in Ukraine, rising interest rates, rising inflation, and a potential recession, to name a few.. We advise everyone to size down, and trade with caution as the market could go either direction very quickly.
