GE Hits That Magic Number

Stocks rally midday as our parent company General Electric spikes over $15 for first time since January. This is an important breakout, and volume spiked IMMEDIATELY as it hit $15.

Also, the Volatility Index (VIX) has been sinking all afternoon, now at the lowest levels since mid-July, so something is likely going on regarding options hedging.

Now watch for other breakouts: for example, IBM is just below the $120 level. If it breaks above that, expect a similar volume and price move higher.
