US Market Summary 7 Mar 08

Dow 11,893.69 -146.70 -1.22%
Nasdaq 2,212.49 -8.01 -0.36%
S&P 500 1,293.37 -10.97 -0.84%

Wall Street ended a dreadful week with another big loss Friday after the government surprised investors with a report that employers eliminated 63,000 jobs last month. The news compounded fears that the U.S. economy, already hampered by an unrelenting credit crisis, is succumbing to recession.

As advised yesterday, the US market is unpredictable and after a series of roller coaster rides, it ended with another dreadful Friday. Monitor your shorts closely, as the market is unstable at the moment. If STI is unable to maintain the support of 2800, it will go on a downtrend, buy puts to hold if that is the case.
