Stock prices once again challenged record highs in the early trading session before retreating, while U.S. Treasuries also experienced a bearish trend, with short-term yields rising slightly due to a sharp increase in import prices (0.7% month-on-month vs. 0.1% expected).

With little important data until next Wednesday, when Nvidias earnings report is released, options imply a +/-8% stock price volatility, slightly lower than its two-year average of +/-8.4% and +10.9% in February. Given the chip giants outsized weighting in the SPX, an 8% implied volatility means an impact of about 0.4% on the SPX, not to mention the spillover effect on sentiment for other related stocks in the index.

There is not much news worth noting in the cryptocurrency sector, with BTC holding steady at recent highs and trading activity flat. However, Coinbases stock price fell 9% yesterday, a significant divergence from the BTC price, as investors began to worry that the entry of institutions such as CME into the spot trading business will lead to increased competition in the compliance field. The entry of TradFi will undoubtedly bring the inflow of funds needed by the industry, but it will also certainly trigger new competition. What will the cryptocurrency market look like in a year or two? We will wait and see.
