    Pre-Market Darth Observations - 5/15


    Everyone needs money. Now, it's the Insurance companies. HIG, ALL, LNC, PFG, AMP and PRU have been approved to take Government TARP money. Their stocks are trading up on the news. Actually, they traded very well yesterday before the news today. lol. But, is this like getting favors from the devil? The Governement wants to change the board of BAC, a TARP recipient. The Government is spreading its tentacles into the Economy. I'm not sure if that's goog or not. The French Government controls 45% of its Economy. America may get there once it controls Health Care.

    Japan was up 190 bips while the Hang Seng closed higher by 150 bips. The Sensex was up 250 bips. Europe is trading relatively flat. Our futures are down. Kind of feels like a down day to me but I'll trade what I see not what I believe.

    Note that I'll be out of pocket next week. Who will hold down the WFR Fort for the bored?
