Commentary: Paul Ebeling on Wall Street
$DIA, $SPY, $QQQ, $VXX
US financial market were closed Monday for Memorial Day.
The Asian and EU markets to work through the weekend stories from the G-7 Summit in Italy.
The Big Q: Will the US markets pick up where the left off Friday?
We are seeing lots of headline negatives, and just because the indices hit new highs does not mean they will/can hold or extend them. But so far the indices have met adversity with steady buying.
Currently, as I write this report at 2:30a EDT on 30 May the major US stock index futures are trading flat to unchanged, bias Neutral
There are more Northside plays setting up, Chinese stocks are also looking good in here.
Remember, always take what the market gives.

The Bulls Vs The Bears
The Bulls faded, the Bears spiked. There is lots of pessimism in this market now, as lots of fund managers and market pundits are negative and it is spreading around, that a good thing.
The Bulls are at 51.9 Vs 58.1 last
The Bears are at 18.3 Vs 17.1 last
