A pretty dynamic day to start the month, with the main indexes managing to close moderately higher, after earlier opening gains evaporated on Boehner war-talk. The metals and Oil both held gains, whilst the VIX reflect a market that is so far..not overly concerned.
A pretty choppy closing hour, bulls can't call that as positive for early Wednesday.
Certainly, in retrospect, shorting the open would have made for a good trade, but really, I'm glad to be sitting the current nonsense out.
I'm still concerned for another 1-2% higher across the next few days.
