Extremely Light Volume Trading Session Again

|Includes: SPDR S&P 500 Trust ETF (SPY)

 Today the major stock indexes are trading slightly higher again as the overall trading volume remains extremely light. As of 3:00 pm EST the highly popular SPDR S&P 500 Trust(NYSE:SPY) is trading just 52 million shares. This ETF normally averages 179 million shares a day, therefore, you can get a real sense of the light volume in this market. Days such as today it is always important to remember the old market adage, "never short a dull market". This is as dull as it gets. Tomorrow is the final trading session of the week before the holiday and it will most likely be another very light volume trading session. Therefore, this is a time to review potential patterns and trade only the best chart setups.
