Headlines convey a certain big picture message to individuals and sometimes if they are not drafted well, they can communicate totally wrong picture of the situation.
Well, I just saw this tweet:
Really, US market ended lower today. Well, optically yes S&P500 closed 2 points down from previous day but in reality - the market ended higher for the day well above the intraday's lows. Here's the intra-day Emini S&P chart
US market sold off in the morning but then slowly recovered all the losses and closed well near the highs of the day. That's very bullish sign and saying that market ended lower is giving false impression to the people. Headlines can be sometimes very misleading. How market trades intra-day gives much more powerful information on state of the market than where it just closes vis-a-vis previous day.
