  1. Buyers still lurking


    02/09/12

    Stocks overcame some early losses as the buyers continued to jump on any weakness thrown their way. It was another very slow day as the Dow ended the day up 6-points.

  5. Sensing the frustration

    02/03/12

    The Dow closed down 11-points yesterday but stocks were mostly higher on the day as the S&P 500, Nasdaq, small caps, and I-fund stocks all posted modest gains.
