  1. Quiet day in front of a big earnings week

    Flat, slow, and tired seems to describe the action on Monday. It was one of the most narrow trading ranges in the last year so perhaps the summer doldrums are kicking in, or it is the calm before the 2nd quarter earnings storm rolls in this week. There was a very late tick higher that moved the Dow up about 27-points, while the S&P moved from negative to positive in the last minute of trading and added a half of a point.

    Stocks opened sharply lower on Tuesday but caught a bid right away and drifted higher the rest of the day on light volume. It was a mixed day for sure with the Dow and Transports down on the day, while the Nasdaq, small caps, and the S&P 500 all finished with gains.
