After an ugly Delta-driven growth scare plunge at the open on Monday, "Get Out & Party" stocks soared this week. The Nasdaq outperformed and Dow lagged on the week as Small Caps gave back their mid-week panic-buying (swinging from down over 2.5% to up over 3.5% to end the week up 2%)...

And the S&P is hitting all time highs because yeah fun-durr-mentals...

"Everything is awesome" though right?

The midweek surge in stocks was all short-squeeze-driven and the last day's push appears simple momentum and lack of gamma pushing back...

Cyclicals outperformed Defensives on the week but both ended higher (NOTE today's gains were dominated by Defensives)..

Cryptos followed a similar path, tumbling into lows on Monday night before rallying back as Ethereum handily outperformed, Bitcoin was around unchanged...

The dollar managed gains on the week (the 3rd weekly gain of the last 4) back to 3-month highs

The "weak dollar" narrative driving stocks higher has been conveniently disregarded...

Bonds were bid on Monday as the world briefly fell apart but sold back to unch on the week. 5Y yields actually fell around 5-6bps on the week...

10Y Yields tried and tried again to get above 1.30% and hold... they failed...

Copper rebounded strongly this week. Gold's modest drop on the week was its first in 5 weeks. Crude managed to barely end green (still pretty impressive after Monday's barf)...

Gold has decoupled from the drop in real yields for now...

Finally, don't tell anyone but the T-Bill market is starting to get spooked by the debt ceiling chatter...

Get back to work Mrs.Yellen.
