August "Action" In October


The early going saw the indices back and forth across unchanged in small ranges and what seemed to be less frenzied action than we've seen recently. From there, they sold off then rallied to close with about 0.75% losses. Net-net, it was a dull day.

Away from stocks, green paper was weaker, fixed income was flattish and the metals bounced back with silver and gold gaining 0.5%, plus or minus.

The miners snapped back very well for the most part, with some now net-net higher over the last couple of days.
