D&D Note (2.23.2018) ~ Markets Rally as Yields Fall ~

Today we bucked the weekly trend and finished the session with a strong rally into the close as the 10YR yield fell below 2.9%. Amazon finished at an all time high of exactly $1,500 as today was an options expiration closing right at the strike price.

Pot stocks are currently retesting lows. At the close IMLFF reversed from being down a few percent to closing up 5.18%. We wouldn’t be surprised to see the rest of the basket of stocks rebound next week off these lows.

Cloud filing sharing company Dropbox as finally announced it will go public with an IPO. The company announced they now have over $1.1 billion in annual revenue.
