Closing Market Commentary For 06-17-2013

The markets sailed along in the afternoon session until about 2 pm where investors got cold feet and the averages started to fall. About an hour later the 'dippers' joined in and stopped the fall bringing the averages about half way back up. Not a good sign of things to come.

By 4 pm weakness was prevalent regardless that the averages put in a good show today. Investors are cautiously sitting on the sidelines waiting for the other shoe to drop as the Forex USD dropped like a rock and didn't recover.

Follow up:

The DOW at 4:00 is at 15180 up 106 or 0.73%.

The SP500 is at 1639 up 12.32 or 0.76%.

SPY is at 164.53 up 1.34 or 82%.

The $RUT is at 987.83 up 6.45 or 0.66%.

NASDAQ is at 3452 up 28.57 or 0.83%.

NASDAQ 100 is at 2971 up 27.40 or 0.93%.
