Busy week on tap despite the holiday shortened trading week. The light trading tends to give these holiday weeks a bull bias as sellers generally square away their concerns in advance of the holiday. Since 1930 the week before Thanksgiving has had a bull bias of 0.6%. Nonetheless, this week could prove more important than many previous Thanksgiving weeks as the market fights to get back over the 1,100 level and the bears appear to have gained some traction. Let’s see what’s on tap:
