Occupy Wall Street going wild with May Day celebrations

Market News

Top Day Market News

5.01

Overnight, in a word, quiet. Today was supposed to be tumultuous with Occupy Wall Street going wild with May Day celebrations but this wave of thunderstorms seems to be effectively short circuiting this. The market seems to be flopping around currently, looking for some sort of thematic direction. The Institute for Supply Management index at 10 may supply that direction.
