Closing Brief

US equities closed somewhat weak, but having broken new historic highs in the morning. The sp'500 settled +1pts @ 2039 (intra high 2046). The two leaders - Trans/R2K, settled lower by -0.2% and -0.9% respectively.



*the closing hour was actually pretty exciting.. with dramatic news that Halliburton is looking to take over Baker Hughes (BHI).

It was pretty funny to hear almost literal screaming on the trading floor, as the stock reopened.. and soared. How many Oil/gas driller bears were covering BHI at ANY costs?

BHI, daily

A FULL set of updates across the evening, to wrap up the day.
