  1. Stocks getting a little weary

    Stocks were holding up in early trading, but a late morning decline took over and we saw a little defensiveness for the first time in several days. The Dow turned negative near the close and lost 24-points, and the other major indices were fairly mixed with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq down modestly, the small caps (Russell 2000) were flat, although the S-fund was down slightly, and the Transports rallied big.

  2. Quiet day in front of a big earnings week

    Flat, slow, and tired seems to describe the action on Monday.

  5. Upside momentum heading into next week's earnings

    It was another mixed day for stocks yesterday with the Dow gaining an impressive 228-points, and the S&P 500 adding about 7.
