The popular averages closed to the upside on Thursday. The stock market will be closed on Friday.

   Above is our 3-month chart of the S&P 500 exchange traded fund (SPY). Following the December plunge, the surpassing of the SPY’s 50-day moving average on January 18 with increased trading volume was most welcome. Since February 15 the SPY has generally remained above its 200-day moving average. However concern last month about a yield curve inversion led to a stumble. It’s been largely forgotten that early in the 20th century the yield curve was regularly inverted amid low inflation, technological innovations and rising stock prices.

   On April 1 the SPY’s 50-day MA pushed above its 200-day MA, a positive technical signal. However the dwindling trading volume, wobbly price action and advent of the traditionally sluggish half-year for the stock market have turned our outlook cautious.
