Opening Market Commentary For 08-19-2013
Premarket was relatively quiet with a negative slant, but nothing to suggest opening market direction.
Markets opened down with gaps on most of the major indices on moderate volume and just like that it reversed course. As the markets eased back up covering earlier gaps to ~+0.20%. Volume started to taper off and the averages leveled off and started to melt downward. Way too early in the session to tell if this is going to be a trend.
Interesting article this morning.
The DOW at 10:15 is at 15084 up 3 or 0.03%.
The SP500 is at 1658 up 2 or 0.11%.
SPY is at 166.04 up 0.19 or 0.11%.

NASDAQ is at 3619 up 16 or 0.45%.
NASDAQ 100 is at 3095 up 22 or 0.71%.
