Seems like a lot of ppl are coming around to GE as they improve their financial business. I think they are ahead of what their price shows.

Not as bad as I thought. A lesser drop at open makes me suspect some confidence will grow and we'll be down 50-60 in the afternoon.

I do think we'll have more down days than up in the next few sessions so I'm not sure its the right moment to buy.

Looks like we might be green today. Might be a good day to lighten up into cash.

Question for you guys about pre and after market... why does this happen?

A stock, one day, will start trading pre market at 6 am and then trade after hours right up until 8 pm. Then the next day the same stock may not even report a price until 9 am and stop trading at 4:15 pm. What the hell?

Not specifically but V, PAY, MC are much better plays. Even AXP.

What's the question? If nobody is desperate to trade it before 9, then there are no trades before 9.

How can a stock that trades millions of shares a day not have any open orders at 9 am?

I think it really depends on the stock. Some are just quirky that way, there's no man behind the curtain.

Anyone else watching MT? Steel is bearish right now but it's edging near historic lows with a Dividend yield of around 3.6%. Thoughts on a long-term hold?

Do you see money heading into construction?

That makes no sense. There has to be a reason this happens.

Not really. Pre-market trading is not really a big thing.

Also, just because you aren't seeing open orders from whatever service you are using doesn't mean that the market makers aren't ready to take either side of the trade.

Its not even a question of orders. I'm not even seeing a posted price anywhere. It just makes no sense and there has to be a reason. Here is a perfect example: I let a day trade on KORS ride overnight and not a single price or share traded pre-market this morning, how can that be possible? Not a single actionable trade was there? Come on.
