US indexes saw minor weak chop across the day, sp -3pts @ 1996. The two leaders - Trans/R2K, settled lower by -0.3% and -0.6% respectively. Near term outlook offers 1985/80 for the bears (at best), but with broader upside across September.
Another day closer to a 3 day holiday weekend, and the market is naturally very subdued.
Contrary to what some are saying, whether the sp'500 manages a weekly/monthly close in the 2000s is of no importance. The primary trend remains strongly bullish.
