Midday Market Commentary For 03-19-2013

Today is an interesting session as the averages are moving in several directions and without warning. Markets are displaying a lot of weakness as the indices drop from the morning highs to below the opening numbers on relatively moderate red volume.

By noon the major indices were off by -0.55% and attempting to consolidate at these lower levels. Where are the HFT computers when you need them. Stay tuned the session is not over yet and the Cyprus law makers have still to vote.

Follow up:

The DOW at 12:00 is at 14417 down 33 or -0.22%.

The SP500 is at 1544 down 8 or -0.50%.

SPY is at 154.17 down 0.82 or -0.53%.

The $RUT is at 943.06 down 4 or -0.44%.

NASDAQ is at 3220 down 17 or -0.53%.

The longer trend is up, the past months trend is bullish, the past 5 sessions have been bullish to neutral and the current bias is down.
