Premarket Commentary For 05-06-2012
Interesting premarket action in that the volume was extraordinary high unlike any in the past year or so. The premarket had opened at highs, partially due the European markets riding high in the water, that were quickly tempered by the bears. The SP500 was up to 1300.69 and with in 30 minutes was reduced to 1289.87. The ‘dippers’ were again present trying to be first in what they hope to be a bull run.
Markets fell a ‘tad’ with this report and quickly recovered
