The stock market had a very volatile day today as the indices went up in the morning, down in the afternoon on news that Trump is going to make the biotech companies accountable for pricing, rallied back up, came back down to retest, held, and then put on a very impressive afternoon rally that took the indices back into the plus column, to close up on the day.


Net on the day, the Dow was up 98.75 at 19,954.28, 19 points off the high. The S&P 500 was up 6.42 at 2275.32, right at the high for the day. The Nasdaq 100 was up 15.04 at 5050.21, also at the high for the day, 38 points off the low.

Advance-declines were 20 to 9 positive on the New York Stock Exchange, and 5 to 4 positive on the Nasdaq. Up/down volume was almost 2 to 1 positive on New York, total volume of 3 1/2 billion shares traded. The Nasdaq traded 1.7 billion shares and had an 11 to 8 positive volume ratio.

TheTechTrader.com board was very mixed today. Priceline.com (PCLN) was up 86 cents to 1536.11, Alphabet Inc. (GOOG) up 3.12 to 807.91, Apple Inc. (AAPL) up 64 cents to 119.75, Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN) 3.12 to 799.03, and Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) 61 cents to 130.50.

The Direxion Daily S&P Biotech Bull 3X ETF (LABU) had a very tough session, down 4.51 to 37.90, but the low is another point below that.

Among other gainers, Workday, Inc. (WDAY) had a big day today, up 7.35 to 81.70, and Teck Resources Limited (TECK) was up 1.57 to 23.98.

Good Trading!
