    Daily Market Commentary for July 30, 2008 from Millennium-Traders.Com

    MBA (Mortgage Bankers Association) Purchase Applications data released today: Mortgage Applications fell a seasonally adjusted 14.1% last week, as applicants shrugged off lower interest rates on fixed-rate loans per the MBA today. (read more)

    Hot Stock picks on the move today for day trading: CF Holdings Incorporated (NYSE: CF) with a daily trading range of over eleven points. Day traders enjoyed the trading activity of CF Industries both on the long and short selling ends. A very nice ride into higher territory began at the opening bell until shortly after the eleven am trading hour. At that point, short sellers moved in for short rides to the down side. At the closing bell, CF Industries tacked on almost 14 points. Overseas Shipholding Group Incorporated (NYSE: OSG) was another active day trading stock today. Day traders began their trading session today taking this stock for a nice ride into lower territory. A bounce began shortly after the one o'clock hour struck. Second Quarter revenues came in at $386.1 Million compared to $274.2 a year ago. Morten Arntzen, President and CEO of OSG commented, “"The crude oil tanker market saw unprecedented levels of strength in the first half of 2008, primarily due to OPEC production increases. This resulted in a significant pick-up in long haul movements at the same time as single hull discrimination increased, creating a strong freight rate environment. On the product tanker side, rates were lifted by a surge in diesel movements worldwide." Arntzen continued, “Market conditions continue to create a very strong outlook for our crude tankers and the prospects for our other two main businesses are equally compelling. Our investments in the U.S. Flag segment and its 14-vessel new build program will nearly double the unit's revenues in three years. In the next 12 months our International Flag Product Carrier business will transform as 13 bareboat chartered-in, non-double hull ships are replaced with modern double hull ships having much greater earnings capacity and the LR1 fleet expands. Our world-class technical and commercial platform, fleet portfolio and ample opportunities to further scale our business gives me and the OSG management team a lot to be excited about." Overseas Shipholding had a trading range on the trading session of over eight points. At the closing bell, Overseas Shipholding posted a loss of just over 5 points.
