    Daily Market Commentary for March 27, 2008 from Millennium-Traders.Com

    Today was a Super Whipper, Chippie Market trading session. Wild trading whips were felt by even the most experienced day traders today. Needless to say, at the closing bell you could almost hear a roar of sighs of relief that the trading day was finally over. Major indices held in negative territory through the trading session as Crude Oil once again surged higher at over $108 a barrel and the Dollar moved in the opposite direction to lose more value. Moving into the close of this week, anticipation is very high for market action to remain if not compound, the weakness seen today.

    At the closing bell on the Stock Exchange, here is how the major indices ended the session on the U.S. Markets:

    DOW (Dow Jones Industrial Average) triple digit loss of 120.40 points on the day to end the session at 12,302.46
