Closing Market Commentary For 07-08-2013
The markets were directionless today after reaching the morning highs. Indices started out O.K. with the $RUT making a new historical high and other averages also doing well out of the starting gate. 10 am highs were never repeated and the averages were in the process of melting down at the close. The SP500 had a 10 point swing which could have resulted in significant gains IF you guessed well.
Low volume made decision making difficult. The markets ended up, but the indicators spell 'S E L L'.
I apologize for the untimely posting this afternoon. Comcast has been up and down 5 times today making any publishing very difficult. No sooner do I get something written or need to review market stats, Comcast goes dark, very disconcerting to say the least. Lousy service at best!
