  1. Quiet day as all eyes were on the skies

    Stocks were lower in early trading but some dip buyers showed up and it turned out to be a relatively quiet day on very light volume as most of America was outside sun gazing. The Dow ended the day up 29-points, which was about 100-points off the lows. The Nasdaq finished with a small loss, but for the most part stocks were flat.
