Top Trade Ideas - January 22nd
All-time highs were the news last week. The S&P 500 reached a new high for the first time since January 4th 2022. The Nasdaq continued flying higher as semiconductor names led the way.

Spirit Airlines was also in the headlines, but for different reasons, falling 73% in three days. Crypto ETFs have indeed been a sell-the-news event, down 32.89%.
In G10 FX, we saw a sharp USD bid as US yields rallied and chatter on rate cuts was pushed back. We discussed this in more detail in our opinion piece on Friday.
As always, the Monday rundown follows as usual. Equity, currency, index and commodity ideas.
