Market Lab Report - Intraday Market Pulse 12/29/15

Published : December 29 2015 at 12:20 ET

Major averages fell yesterday on higher volume compared to Thursday's holiday-shortened session, and was well below its 50-day average as it was the second lowest volume of trade seen in weeks. However, after a weak start, the averages managed to close near the top of their respective trading ranges, a bullish sign. This morning the indexes are continuing higher as oil prices bounce and big-stock NASDAQ names like GOOGL and AMZN break out to all-time highs.

Quiet trading volumes this last week of the year can amplify volatility, so keep stops on your stocks tight.
