Daily Investment Interpretations
December 26, 2008
Another humdrum day in the stock market. Today's session saw a rise
in the market indices of around half a percent, with the NASDAQ
rising about 0.35%
to close at 1,530, and the Dow and S&P 500
increasing about 0.5%
to 8,516 and 873, respectively. Oil rose to $37.71
a barrel, and gold rose about $23.20
to $871.20 an ounce. The VIX fell minutely from 44.8 to 43.4.
This is a quiet time of year and there may not be much action before January 2nd.
