S&P closed at a record level yesterday

The major indices are opening mixed/little changed as focus turns toward the first day of trading in Coinbase.  Chatter is the $250 reference prices more is quite a bit higher (like over $500-$600).  It will likely take a while for the first trade.  The symbol is COIN. That would value the company at over $100B.

A snapshot of the Forex market, continues to show the NZD as the strongest of the majors (and breaking to new highs as I type). It is widening its lead versus the AUD in early North American trading.  The CAD and CHF are the weakest.
