Financial Stocks Keep Markets From Coming Unglued – JPM, BAC, GS, WFC

This morning, all of the leading financial stocks are catching a bid higher. This move in the financial stocks comes despite the sharp sell off in the overnight trading session in the futures market. The most important financial stock that any trader can follow is J.P. Morgan Chase & Co (NYSE:JPM). Today, JPM stock is trading higher by 0.25 cents to $42.00 a share. It should be known by almost every trader and investor by now that JPM is stock should be treated as a stock market barometer. The stock will likely have intra-day resistance around the $42.30 area.
