S&P 500 (SPX) Nasdaq (QQQ) Day Ahead: Can the Fed stop the red


Here is what you need to know on Tuesday, May 11:

Equity markets are in the red again on Tuesday as the Fed looks on, powerless for now. Inevitable really. Things cannot keep going up forever, but it is always easier in hindsight. Meme stocks and high-value names continue to suffer disproportionally. Palantir (PLTR) reported strong earnings, but the valuation is just too high. The speculation over ARKK continues as most names suffer further falls on Monday and again in Tuesday's premarket. 

The VIX continues to awake from its slumber, up another 13% on Tuesday, hitting 22 while even the 10-year makes a move with the yield moving above 1.6%.
