Midday Market Commentary For 08-01-2013
By 10:30 the markets had finished climbing to new highs and then began the sideways dance as volume dried up mostly because investors are waiting to see who is going to push the market one way or another.
From my seat at 30,000 feet I can't see this market going much higher. Having said that I do see the market melting up but only because of investors beliefs of more free ice cream and their ability to catch a falling knife.
