RegMed Daily, Closing Bell, 10/24/11, big swings in sentiment

End of Day, Cause and Effect …

 

Big swings in sentiment … as volitility <a lot of short covering> continues (but, lets wait until after EU <decision> Wednesday … even then I wouldn’t believe it) … optimism is being priced into the market … but … it is still a market of extremes.

 

 Closing Bell: The NASDAQ closed UP +61.98 (2.35%) to 2,699.44. The Dow closed UP +104.83 (0.89%) to 11,913.62.
