Midday Market Commentary For 06-26-2013

Not a lot is happening with Mr. Market today. The volume is very low, investor interest is obviously lacking and most likely we will see anther session like yesterday's.

By noon the numbers were less than exciting along with low volume best characterized as lackluster. The HFT computers will probably melt the averages up prior to the closing bell.

Follow up:

The DOW at 12:00 is at 14844 up 85 or 0.57%.

The SP500 is at 1597 up 9 or 0.59%.

NASDAQ is at 3369 up 21 or 0.62%.
