Major U.S. indices such as the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ Composite have both recently stabilized and bounced for the second time off their respective 50 day moving averages. Though historically June tends to be a negative month for stocks, with only 9 trading days left in the quarter we wonder aloud whether quarter ending “window dressing” will keep stocks elevated until June passes.

Please see attached note for chart on the S&P 500 and NASDAQ Composite.
