  1. Stocks open lower on NoKo launch, but closed higher

    Stocks opened sharply lower on Tuesday and the Dow was down 130+ at the open, but that was actually higher than the 200-point loss we saw in overnight trading in the Dow futures. By the close things reversed positively and the Dow ended the day up 57-points. Volume was not too heavy as we would normally expect to see on a reversal day like that, but that's because of the time of year and the light volume added to the volatility.
