Closing Market Commentary For 10-01-2013

Markets moved up considerably during the last 1 minute, sky rocketed in fact. No news that would have caused this, most likely a rumor that Obama caved in - NOT! The NASDAQ also set a new high which is important if this bull market is going to continue.

By 4 pm the green volume was moderate to heavy with the BTFDers moving the SP500 to today's highs and the DOW up to almost that high. Looked exciting, but it wasn't and the markets remain bearish in light of the government shutdown uncertainties.
