But US Stocks managed gains after last week’s mixed bag with Small Caps showing the biggest swings intraday (and managing to scramble and hold on to green)…

Record highs for S&P, Dow, & Nasdaq.

But the improvements are slowing for stocks and the runs are not extending intraday as Goldman’s Chris Hussey notes, the bar for catalysts that drive meaningful upside for the S&P 500 from here is likely higher now vs earlier this year as investors navigate a ‘peak growth – peak liquidity’ backdrop.

And rather notably, all these gains have come as the number of NYSE new 52-week highs has plummeted to its lowest since Nov 2020…

As Morgan Stanley noted, we think the recent decline in rates, commodities, and cyclical stocks geared to economic growth is indicative of a market that is getting worried about the sustainability of the pace of recovery, especially relative to expectations. Perhaps the greatest warning sign coming from the market is the increasing deterioration in breadth as the index makes new highs every week. While the decline in long end rates has appropriately benefitted large cap growth stocks over the past month, we would suggest lower rates from here will no longer prove to be beneficial to stocks as it will signal these growth fears are coming true.

Makes you wonder when the rope gets cut?
