Capital Markets Snapshot: Clouds, Blood, and Flows

Sheldon McIntyre

Last Thursday’s overnight equity futures swoon and Friday’s subsequent recovery highlighted the recent injection of volatility in the capital markets. And with this in mind, I thought it would be helpful to share a handful of annotated charts I’m watching and analyzing that highlight some of the divergences, extremes, supports and resistances currently in play in the capital markets.

Let’s review the charts and setups:
