Midday Market Commentary For 10-02-2013
The averages did move off their morning lows as expected, but much uncertainty remains as volume declines and the numbers stay in the -050% area.
By noon the numbers looked as if they were going to melt down a bit, but that is a guess. The most likely scenario is that the markets will close down modestly remaining in the trading zone of the past several sessions.
The longer this shutdown goes on the wider the number swings on any news, rumor or war mongering. Indicators still point to the sell side, longer views are simply unreliable.
The DOW at 12:00 is at 15110 down 82 or -0.54%.
The SP500 is at 1689 down 6 or -0.38%.
SPY is at 168.71 down 0.67 or -0.38%.
The $RUT is at 1082 down 5 or -0.46%.
NASDAQ is at 3808 down 10 or -0.25%.
The longer trend is up, the past months trend is bullish, the past 5 sessions have been bearish and the current bias is positive.
WTI oil is trading between 101.43 and 103.839 today. The session bias is positive and is currently trading up at 103.70.
