Closing Market Commentary For 07-16-2013
Sorry for not publishing a midday report, Comcast has been out all day. The averages have generally suffered from an investor lack of confidence today and Mr. Market isn't about to give up its secrets either. My indicators say we could go up as well as head south in the near term.
By 4 pm the averages had traded in a narrow zone for most of the afternoon with several false starts both positive and negative totally confusing investors. Volume was low to moderate with the $VIX steadily melting upwards currently at 14.48.
