Midday Market Commentary For 08-16-2013
Nothing, not a darn thing happened all morning. Investors sat on their hands waiting for the other guy to make a move as the averages remained flat, mixed and lackluster.
By 12:30 the averages were headed down to test the support from yesterday's session. Moving very slow on anemic volume the numbers melted downward towards the 'line in the sand'.
