  5. Slow, slow, slow

    Stocks slipped on Thursday as the Dow shed 77-points with modest to minor losses in the broader indices. Once again the double top is holding as resistance but the bears are not putting any pressure on the bulls, so we're having a bit of a standoff rather than a pullback.
