Opening Market Commentary For 08-12-2013
Premarket was down 0.75% and of course the markets opened down, but it was a bear trap. Within 10 minutes most the averages had closed the opening gap and the remainder were not far behind. The opening was under heavy red volume soon followed by heavy green volume from the BTFD folks.
