Closing Market Commentary For 05-13-2013
The gap for the DOW remains open from this morning and most likely will be closed tomorrow. Although the markets are mostly flat and mixed, they did surprisingly well recovering from the opening plummet this morning.
The markets have remained in the zone of indecision leaving investors in a lurch of what to do next; buy or sell!
