Opening Market Commentary For 10-15-2013
Premarkets started out at -0.06% and melted down to -0.35% prior to the opening. Earnings are mixed with Citi missing, J&J beating and Coca-cola matching street views. The NY Manufacturing fell sharply for October giving one more worry to investors regarding the US financial health and supposed recovery. The party should go on unabated with the Fed's taper being put off to a later date.
Markets opened down as expected with some confused BTFD gamblers jumping in to slum for profitable leverage. By 10 am the averages had climbed back up near yesterday's closing numbers on low to moderate volume.
Action for today could change in a heart beat if the US law makers come up with a plan.
