Midday Market Commentary For 09-05-2013
Noontime show indices off the morning highs by a smidgin (0.10%) and generally sliding along in a very tight range bound zone of +- 0.05%. Volume has fallen off and appears to be approaching anemic levels.
The upper resistance was penetrated slightly and then melted down to the new support but didn't move through it and that is where we find the averages at 12:00. Could be we are seeing another consolidation in progress.
The Syrian conflict situation doesn't seem to have quieted down any and investors are wondering what to do as the Fed has hinted it is going to start tapering the free ice cream soon. The bears seem to have the edge inspite of an positive market.
