Midday Market Commentary For 08-22-2013
Summertime blues seem to have taken hold as the averages melt ever so slowly upwards on low to moderate volume.
By noon investors were waiting for news from Jackson Hole, but I suspect it will hold nothing of interest as the Feds are trying to keep a sudden rush to the exits in check.
Appears we have seen the highs for the day and baring any market shaking news the averages should lose some of their appeal and start drifting downwards.
The DOW at 12:15 is at 14963 up 66 or 0.44%.
The SP500 is at 1655 up 12 or 0.72%.
