Market View

Last Week – Late week rally sends stocks higher and IV lower

A late-week rally powered the SPY higher by 2%, a slightly larger move than options were pricing. The VIX fell sharply on the rally, finishing the week near 18.50 (down from 22 the week before)

This Week – Powell and Jobs

SPY options are pricing about a 1.6% move for the week. IV is on the low end of the range we’ve seen lately as earnings season winds down but we will get congressional testimony from Jerome Powell early in the week, the release of the Beige Book midweek, and the NFP jobs number on Friday. Here’s this week’s SPY levels for a 1.6% expected move, about $397 on the downside and $411 on the upside:
