Midday Market Commentary For 08-09-2013
Interesting session in that the averages are generally melting downward, but that the volume is moderate to heavy indicating investors are closing out riskier positions.
By noon the averages had bounced off the morning lows and consolidated about half way down from the opening. Volume is falling off looking more and more like this is going to be a session in the red.
The signs are there for a small correction at least in the near future. The big one, some are touting, I think is a way off into the future.
For the 7th time in the last day or so, the S&P 500 has tested up to the magical 1,700 level and failed.
With JPY once against strengthening as carry unwinds re-escalate, we wait breathless for a deja deja deja vu repeat of the last 3 days post-European close rampfest...
