Market Lab Report - Premarket Pulse 1/20/16
Major averages finished roughly flat yesterday closing mid-bar on lower but still above average volume. The indexes gave up an opening gap-up move and spun around in volatile fashion all day long with the Dow and the S&P 500 closing slightly up while the NASDAQ diverged to the downside. The market along with most leading stocks have yet to stage any meaningful bounce, a testament to the eroding internals.
Futures are down nearly 2% at the time of this writing as oil falls under $28, a 12-year trading low stoking fears of the slowing economy in China.
