Could Sun worship be the cause for every Stock Market Crash?

What role do Sun Spots play with the Stock Market?

U.S. financial markets will be closed early on Monday and completely shut down on Tuesday in observance of July Fourth.

Next week marks the beginning of a new month, new quarter and the start of the second half of the year. U.S. equity markets will enter the second half with solid gains, as the S&P 500 SPX, +0.15% is up 8% since the start of the year.

Bond markets also did well, with Treasury prices up, and yields on benchmark long-dated bonds down 20 basis points since the start of the year. Bond yields move inversely to prices.

Meanwhile, the dollar weakened against major rivals, with the ICE U.S. Dollar index falling 6% year to date.

Traders expect thin trading on Monday, as many will be away on vacation or taking advantage of the long holiday weekend.

The Securities Industries and Financial Markets Associations has recommended that the bond markets close early on Monday at 2 p.m. Eastern and be closed completely on Tuesday.

The New York Stock Exchange will end trading at 1 p.m. Eastern on Monday and will be closed on Tuesday.

Trading in derivatives such as options and futures will be limited on Monday and closed on Tuesday.

Settlement of options and futures on CME Group’s Globex on Monday will be at noon for agricultural, interest rate, foreign exchange, real estate, weather and equity products and at 3 p.m. Eastern for metals and energy products.

The prices of shares in some of the world’s biggest companies seemed to alternately plummet or soar in after-hours trading on Nasdaq Inc.’s flagship exchange.

The likes of Amazon.com Inc. and Microsoft Corp.’s shares appeared to fall by more than 50 percent, while Apple Inc.’s stock was at one stage trading 348 percent higher, data from post-market trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market showed on Monday. That gave the iPhone maker a theoretical market capitalization of $3.4 trillion, compared to the $751 billion at which it was valued when trading closed on Friday.

The swings came on a day that the U.S. stock market closed early at 1 p.m., on the eve of the July 4 holiday. In another unusual detail, pricing data showed more than a dozen securities including Apple, Microsoft and Nasdaq’s own company stock at the same price, $123.47. It wasn’t immediately clear if shares changed hands at those prices.

The apparent swings triggered trading halts in some securities, according to automatically generated messages. The halts are a mechanism exchanges use to limit the impact of particularly volatile sessions. A system status alert on Nasdaq’s website said that systems were operating normally at 8:23 p.m. ET. After-market hours on Nasdaq typically last from 4 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Will Briganti, a spokesman for Nasdaq, was unable to immediately comment on the situation.

Very odd occurrences here, reeks of market manipulation. If one were to have prior knowledge of these events, millions could be made in the blink of an eye - which is certainly what I think has happened here.

Others are reporting that Yahoo and Google were reporting the information incorrectly.
