Midday Market Commentary For 10-25-2013
The averages have basically moved up in a straight line for the past three sessions if that means anything. Investors are getting wary of this continuing bull market in light of financial news that is not getting any better, plus reports coming out of the Euro Zone of deteriorating conditions there.
By noon the averages have sea-sawed their way sideways on falling volume remaining near flat. The $RUT eased into the red around 11:30 am and is continue to melt down as other markets are beginning to look weak.
At noon the averages have once again today melted down to the morning lows testing the support. Mr. Market is not giving out any hints to what he has planned for the afternoon.
Short term indicators are still in the 50-50 zone with some emphasis on the sell side. The longer term indicators are also leaning toward the sell side too.
