Midday Market Commentary For 10-09-2013
Markets slipped down to new lows and recovered to where they are now testing the resistance created by this morning's lows. Volume is light and we may have seen the bearish action for the day. Middle finger negotiations going on between the US political factions have gone nowhere and appear to be just a side show the real issues facing the financial markets.
By noon investors were getting increasingly edgy wondering when the bottom will fall out.
The declining markets may end up looking like a waterfall in the dead of winter and catch everyone by surprise expecting it to rebound at any moment, but it just keeps on slipping. That is the way I see it, be prepared.
