Midday Market Commentary For 07-12-2013

Markets have quietly muddled their way sideways on low to moderate volume. By 11:30 there was a slight negative trend forming but by 1 pm not much had happened.

Are we warming up to a push up and beyond or a correction of some sort.

Follow up:

The DOW at 1:00 is at 15417 down 41 or -0.26%.

The SP500 is at 1673 down 2.23 or -0.13%.

SPY is at 167.18 down 0.26 or -0.18%.

The $RUT is at 1034 up 0.99 or 0.10%.

NASDAQ is at 3577 down 1.50 or -0.04%.

NASDAQ 100 is at 3055 down 4 or -0.13%.

The longer trend is up, the past months trend is bullish, the past 5 sessions have been bullish and the current bias is mixed but with a negative tendency.
