|Includes: SELLAS Life Sciences Group, Inc. (SLS), SPY

Market Morning Sentiment - May 24th


With the prospect of a Fed interest rate hike in June, investors sold off some of their yield-play stocks on Monday and utilities fell 1%. The Treasury yield curve also began to flatten as anticipation of a rate hike grows. Market Sentiment on the S&P500 SPY ETF points to more 'risk aversion' behavior among traders, which is likely to continue until uncertainty around the Fed rate decision is quelled.
