Editors Note:

Really, nothing happened. The total gain/loss for all six positions was 2 cents. This was the lowest volume day of the year at 6.1 billion. There is simply no investor interest in buying a market high. Investors are concerned that the weal earnings coupled with the swirling geopolitical headlines could negatively impact the market once the ne which is touched. Unfortunately, they are right. There is no reason to risk new money in the market in hopes of gaining the 34 S&P points until the retest of its highs.
