By Peter Nurse -- Stocks in focus in premarket trade on Wednesday, December 1st. Please refresh for updates.

What a surprise...Yet another loss reversed the day after it occurs.  The laughingstock of the financial world can "rally" for days on end, but single day losses are now the norm.  Let's criminally inflate equities so they can be unloaded on retirement plans.  Assume the proper position America, the Wall Street FRAUD continues.
