For Week, Dow & NYSE Down, S&P Up Slightly

While it may not feel that way, for the full week the Dow was down 16 points. The NYSE Composite lost 0.33% during the week. The S&P 500 gained less than 5 points over the last five sessions. For us, the question is “how much risk would we have been exposed to in order to capture less than 5 points of S&P 500 upside?” Answer: “too much” or a poor risk-reward environment.
