Closing Market Commentary For 10-01-2013
Markets moved up considerably during the last 1 minute, sky rocketed in fact. No news that would have caused this, most likely a rumor that Obama caved in - NOT! The NASDAQ also set a new high which is important if this bull market is going to continue.
By 4 pm the green volume was moderate to heavy with the BTFDers moving the SP500 to today's highs and the DOW up to almost that high. Looked exciting, but it wasn't and the markets remain bearish in light of the government shutdown uncertainties.
And the markets moves Up?
The DOW at 4:00 is at 15191 up 62 or 0.41%.
The SP500 is at 1695 up 13 or 0.80%.
SPY is at 169.45 up 1.33 or 0.79%.
The $RUT is at 1087 up 13.64 or 1.27%.
NASDAQ is at 3818 up 46 or 1.23%.
The longer trend is up, the past months trend is bullish, the past 5 sessions have been bearish and the current bias is positive.
WTI oil is trading between 102.57 and 101.06 today. The session bias is positive and is currently trading down at 101.86.
