  1. Trying to get thru seaonally challenged September

    Stocks opened higher on Friday, but like the prior week or so, we've seen more choppy back and forth action as the S&P 500 has traded between 2980 and 3020, and some of those days nearly hit the top and bottom of that range in a single day. Friday traded near the top of that range to start the day, and closed closer to the bottom. The Dow lost 160-points.

    A bumpy week in stock prices ends with mostly selling after potential trouble in trade negotiations Friday.

Stocks sank initially after the rate cut announcement but the last hour of trading saw dip buyers and buy programs kick in and pull the indices into positive ...
  5. Holding steady into FOMC meeting

    Stocks flip flopped Monday's action on Tuesday with modest gains basically getting back Monday's losses in the case of the indices that were down on Monday, while the small caps of the Russell 2000 declined after Monday's big rally. The reversal in the price of oil had a lot to do with that as Saudi Arabia downplayed the impact of the strikes on their oil fields. Most of the gains on the day were realized in the final hour of trading.
