The weekly Market Update is posted at Alpha Baskets and includes the following;
Tech was also seen a driver of volatility after leading the market higher in January. While you might think that tech had a relatively bad quarter that was not the case. Looking at the more heavily traded, broad tech sector funds they were actually higher on the quarter as were narrower tech-themed niche funds. While there were some very loud news stories and painful declines in select names, the gains in tech broadly might serve as a reminder that most investors would be better off not trying to trade fast, short term moves.

On Friday I hiked with a couple of buddies to the Granite Mountain Hotshots Memorial State Park. The hike is 7.2 miles round trip starting from Highway 89 a mile or two south of Yarnell going to the deployment site. During the Yarnell Hill Fire on June 30th, 2013, 19 of the Granite Mountain Hotshots perished. I will have more to say at the 5th anniversary but for now some pictures from the hike. The scenery is epic and the shrines are very touching.
