Midday Market Commentary For 10-23-2013

The averages have sea-sawed downward on volume that was heavy in the morning and is currently sliding to moderate. Obviously, investors are leaning to the sell side, but the jury is still out with a final judgment.

By noon the volume was falling, the numbers were falling and investors mood was not improving.

Follow up:

Maybe by the session end today we will be able to ascertain a hint of direction.

The DOW at 12:30 is at 15381 down 85 or -0.55%.

The SP500 is at 1743 down 11 or -0.63%.

SPY is at 174.33 down 1.05 or -0.60%.

The $RUT is at 1111 down 5 or -0.61%.

NASDAQ is at 3898 down 31 or -0.79%.

NASDAQ 100 is at 3337 down 30 or -0.89%.

The longer trend is up, the past months trend is bullish, the past 5 sessions have been positive and the current bias is negative.
