Without a whole lot to move the markets, trading was quiet today.
Although the ranges were small, stocks managed to finish higher.
Netflix (NFLX) was on the move today after the company shared strong growth numbers outside the U.S. Netflix finished the day with a3.7% gain.
Today’s market movement, or lack thereof, isn’t much of surprise. After all, the S&P is up 1.6% this month andup 27.4% this year as we approach the holidays.
Market Environment -- today's choppy, little follow-thru -- this was apparent early this morning by looking at the bellwether stocks (they're mixed re performance) & the state of the futures (prior to the last 30-45 mins or so it's been an inside day). A mediocre trading environment.
