Closing Market Commentary For 10-03-2013
Markets eased up from the lows on a rumor that SOTH Boehner had reached a deal on the debt ceiling, but in the end the averages started to sink again.
By 4 pm markets had eased down to -090+% and will probably will continue the melting down tomorrow morning. Expect more volatility as each day of no resolve in the shutdown progresses.
There is a lot going on out there. First we have the US Government shutdown, then the upcoming debt ceiling clash and let's not forget about Obamacare.
Presented with a stunned level of WTFness... the Obamacare Help-Line - available 24/7 is 1-800-318-2596 as we have been told a number of times by the President...
It seems someone did not do their due diligence on what that telephone number's [mnemonic] is...1-800-F U-CKYO
Indeed, Mr. President, 1-800-318-2596 to you too.
