Stocks were higher today with the S&P up 8.5 points. Today’s close was the highest close for the S&P in August. The DOW ended the session 62 points higher.
Some traders were a little surprised with today’s move higher considering that unemployment claims were higher than expected, and Eurozone missed GDP expectations. 10 Year Notes also continued the unusual correlation with stocks, rising for the second consecutive day.
These interesting scenarios leave some traders scratching their heads. But this is why it’s important to trade what you see, not what you THINK. ￼
