Monday’s Factors and Events

The bulls should feel pretty happy with how June turned out. The first few days of the month felt very much like a melt-up – and then a 6% loss on June 11 looked like it could be the start of something very bearish. Maybe it will prove to be, but that huge distribution day was actually the low of the month. You can attempt to draw a bullish or bearish narrative, but the S&P 500 traded flat from the June 11 close to finish the first half with a small loss.
