WSJ’s News: Insiders sell large amounts of stocks:
Barron’s News:The commodities crash “News of the lag far behind news from the European debt crisis, the oil-spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. From copper to crude oil to corn, prices are tumbling since the better part of a month.
Copper is looking sickly. “The metal with a PhD in economics,” so named for its sensitivity to the global economy, is down more than 20% in the past month.
Empire State Manufacturing Index fell much more sharply than expected, to 19.1 in May from 31.9 in April. That indicates a sharp deceleration but continued positive growth.
Crude oil also fell sharply Monday, by $1.53, or 2.1%, to settle at $70.08 a barrel for the active June futures contract”
