September 24, 2017 The Week Ahead

The S&P 500 & Dow Jones Industrial Averages closed the week positive. The shining star was small caps, as the Russell 2000 gained more than 1%. However, we did see weakness in some tech names, forcing the Nasdaq to close the week 1% lower.

Shares of AAPL -5%, AMZN -3.21%, FB -0.64, and TSLA -7.56% all finished lower.

Despite the sell off in some high profile tech names, the VIX is not worried. The “fear index” closed at 9.60 on Friday.
