Midday Market Commentary For 06-25-2013
Indices have shown a strong upward move in trading in today's session, regaining some ground having falling sharply in recent sessions. The major averages have climbed firmly into positive territory but the SP500 gap at 1592 still remains elusive even with the DOW climbing to over 100 again. Volume remains in the low category and continues to fall as we enter the afternoon session.
By noon the markets have traded in a tight narrow zone generally not conducive to profitable day trading. Swing trading on the other hand might just turn out to be very profitable – IF you guess correctly.
The afternoon trading appears to have slowed considerably and any further action appears to be from the HFT computers.
The DOW at 1:00 is at 14772 up 111 or 0.76%.
The SP500 is at 1587 up 14 or 0.92%.
SPY is at 158.52 up 1.45 or 0.92%.
The $RUT is at 958.16 up 7.10 or 0.74%.
NASDAQ is at 3343 up 22 or 0.68%.
NASDAQ 100 is at 2864 up 16 or 0.56%.
The longer trend is up, the past months trend is bullish, the past 5 sessions have been bearish and the current bias is bullish.
