Midday Market Commentary For 09-27-2013
Markets fell at the opening and have recovered slightly (+0.15%) from the morning lows but remain depressed at the -0.50% level. Volume is higher than past sessions with a particularly high red spike about 11:30, but trending remains positive as investor participation fall to anemic levels.
By noon the large caps were melting up at a snails pace while the small caps were even or descending. Overall, the markets look weak and poised to fall further.
This lack of recovery, Fed indecision and government gridlock is having a negative effect on investors. Short term indicators remain at 65% to 75% sell and hovering around 25% buy.
