Closing Market Commentary For 07-25-2013
Markets continued to melt upwards throughout today’s session stumbling a few times. Weakness is obviously prevalent throughout the markets performance today. Volume overall is low, large caps slow to rise and financial are not exactly awe inspiring. News from the EU and China is also disturbing and is not building confidence among investors. Then there is ol’ Ben back peddling his way out of this mess.
By 4 pm most investors were tired of this lackadaisical whimpering source of irritation and just wanted to go home. Maybe Mr. Market will give us some action tomorrow – up, down, anything. I know, be careful of what you wish.
