Whilst the headline indexes - sp'500/Dow/Nasdaq, are holding minor gains, the two indexes that often lead the market lower (if only for a retrace!) - Trans/R2K, are both moderately lower. Metals and Oil remain very weak.
Little to add.
Equity bears could do with the Dow/SP' closing flat/marginally negative... along with VIX 12s.
notable weakness: Copper miners, FCX/TCK, both lower by around -4.5%
strength: AAPL, +1.9% in the $132s
