After a dismal week on the street, the major indices managed to close on a brighter note. Even with the positive close across the three major indices, the markets endured their worst week of 2012. The Dow closed up 34.59 points to 13,080.73. The Nasdaq added just over 4 points to close at 3067.92. Rounding out the positive day on the street, the S&P 500 added 4.33 points to close at 1,397.11.
Lukewarm data started the market off in the red but analysts said it was as if people that had missed the recent rally decided to buy the dip. This helped send stocks higher across the board. Plus a drop in the dollar helped commodities recover some of their lost ground.
The world of penny stocks continued to be dominated by older pumps. Lots of volatility in the usual suspects as everyone gears up for the next big one in the coming weeks. If you are risk-tolerant there seems always be a volatile penny stock in play.
