Breadth, in Stock market terms, usually means strength of markets, such as Advancing stocks over Decliners, New Highs over Lows, etc. Last week the change on the NYSE was....+7 stocks. Otherwise, New Highs were strong on both markets, the New Market High treadmill keeps ramping UP - The Trend is your Friend, until it Bends at the End.
The Dollar seeks new recent lows, as other countries support their currencies with sharper rate hikes than our Fed. The end-of-month Margin Interest number is out, near record highs, thanks to the low rates.
