Yesterday market being the second-to-last session of the first quarter, that is frequently seen as a “fundamentally right” chance to mark up equities. We find that as valid an excuse as any for the vitality of the market into midday session yesterday, as the Nasdaq index powered forward, with the broader S&P 500 and DJI lingering behind.

However, the underwriters of the Lyft Initial Public Offering might have had a hand in propping up the equities as well. In the lunchtime, the initial gains essentially evaporated, however, a late-day drive took the all main indices back to around a 0.5 percent gain.

Away from the equities, Greenback was a slightly firmer and fixed income was a small lower. Though, there were fireworks in the metal market, as Gold and Silver both succumbed around 1.5 percent. The proximate explanation for that, in our conclusion, had to do with the 7 percent Palladium nosediving, which produced its 2-day declines to approximately 15 percent.

We speculate that many traders and investors may have been powerless to sell their Palladium holdings or perhaps were reluctant to, and might have hedged by shorting Yellow Metal. Or additionally, probably the sell-off in Palladium accelerated the disposal of other metals as well. Never the less, it was pretty much a wipe out.
