Midday Market Commentary For 09-30-2013
Large caps have recovered almost half of this mornings drop and the small caps have recovered 90% of their fall. Investors are showing signs of renewed faith that the government shutdown crisis is going to be solved by midnight tonight. Volume is tapering off somewhat as the buying trend is melting up.
By noon the averages were starting to show signs of weakness and perhaps we have seen the highs for the day. It wouldn't all that much to send the averages into a tail-spin and test the morning lows.
Today is not a good day for traders unless you like to guess. Please be careful.
