Midday Market Commentary For 08-19-2013

From the surprising reversal opening this morning the averages have been melting down to where they are now all red, except for the small caps. The NASDAQ is up over 0.30% and I expect the large caps to turn around before the end o f this session or at least trim the small losses we see at noon.

By noon the down trend was in place but might not remain that way. At any rate the averages are flat, unattractive and sightly negative - all on anemic volume of course. Where are the HFT computers when you need them?
