Midday Market Commentary For 06-07-2013
By noon the averages were posting great gains, but the question lingers for how long. The volume is not in line with the markets gains today being low to medium suggesting manipulation from the HFT computers.
By noon we has started to see some weakness and the averages have slipped of the day's highs. Whether this is going to continue today is anyone's guess, but I suspect the day will close up nicely.
Unemployment really isn't very good but the market seems not to care as long as ol' Ben keeps pouting the money in.
