Midday Market Commentary For 10-03-2013
After a brief sideways movement the averages started to slide down once more past the -1.00% mark. Investors are concerned that this additional slippage is forecasting things to come.
By noon the concept of bouncing off the morning lows had been tossed out the window as no signs of session bottoming was apparent.
The $VIX has for the first time in months climbed to 18.62 (and climbing) and that is certainly a worry point and long investors should be concerned.
The DOW at 12:00 is at 14953 down 181 or -1.20%.
The SP500 is at 1671 down 23 or -1.39%.
SPY is at 166.91 down 2.23 or -1.32%.
The $RUT is at 1065 down 18 or -1.61%.
NASDAQ is at 3755 down 60 or -1.57%.
The longer trend is up, the past months trend is bullish, the past 5 sessions have been negative and the current bias is bearish.
