The Closing Look

Stock Market Commentary:
Stocks ended higher after vacillating between positive and negative territory on Tuesday as oil prices traded all over the map. In the morning, oil prices up nicely but turned negative and actually fell below $30 a barrel for the first time in 12 years! Stocks turned higher after oil prices stopped falling. Stocks are trying to bounce from deeply oversold levels.The inability for stocks to bounce speaks volumes at how weak the market is right now.

Gary’s Thoughts: A long day of back and forth…big gap sold…market goes negative…ramps in last hour. We call it a huge, extreme oversold condition and expect more upside. How it gets there…how long it goes for? No clue. We also expect major action out of China to suppress selling…which may or may not help.
