  1. The ISM kills morning rally

    Stocks opened sharply higher yesterday and it looked like we were getting a Turnaround Tuesday and a new direction for October, as we talked about yesterday, but a weaker than expected ISM Manufacturing report changed things quickly, and we ended the day with a negative outside reversal on many of the charts.
