The Morning Look

Market Update:

Stock futures are flat ahead  of Thursday’s open on the first day of December. Oil prices vaulted 9% on Wednesday after OPEC cut production for the first time in 8 years. The always fun (and fake) jobs report will be released on Friday.

Gary’s Thoughts: Futures flat but jello moving all over the plate. Oil prices up another couple percent in pre-market. Oil stocks continue on yesterday’s breakout. In the past, these breakouts failed. Not sure they fail this time.
