Daily Investment Interpretations

January 31, 2011

2011-1-31 (Monday) The market indices regained a fraction of the losses they sustained last Friday: Markets tend to take crises in stride. The NASDAQ Composite annexed 13.19 points (0.49%) to 2,700.08. The Dow recouped 68.23 points (0.58%) to end at 11,891.93, while the S&P 500 added 9.78 points (0.77) to close at: 1,286.12. Oil closed up at $92.22 a barrel on concerns about Mid-Eastern political unrest, while Gold ended at $1,334. The VIX dropped 0.51  to 19.53.
    Although the market indices appear to be rebounding from last Friday's debacle, my investment advisory service is in a selling mood. 
    Stock market futures are modestly elevated tonight, so at least at the opening tomorrow morning, the indices should reflect tonight's enthusiasm.   
      
2011-1-31 (Monday Morning, Before the Bell) Stock market futures are up significantly this morning.

(Sunday Night)
Stock market futures are flat tonight, so it's anybody's guess what the morning will bring.
