Midday Market Commentary For 09-12-2013
Today's trend is definitely down but yesterday's support couldn't hold back the bears as they continually nibble at the numbers. Volume is low to moderate and not enough bulls to keep the averages from slipping further down. Investors are evidently getting worried that the past up 7 days may need a correction and are trying to beat the crowd by selling now.
By noon the averages were through the weak support and looking further down. The bulls are trying to change this negative direction, but they have already spent their monies pushing it up.
The Syrian debacle is heating up again with Assad's incredulous demands that Israel and the US have to dispose their WMD's. Today's decline is, in part, due to Obama's backpedaling and lack of backbone. This could be the joke of the day.
