Stocks were still in drifting mode with a sideways chop, albeit with a little histrionic action in the morning.
Chicago PMI missed by quite a bit.
Pending home sales were 'better than expected.' However, the prior month was adjusted from slightly positive to more negative, and the year-over-year home sales declined by a little more than 2 percent.
There is so little real volume on the exchanges that the algos have pretty much a free hand in shoving prices around.
This is a market not worth trading for the non-insider.
Have a pleasant evening.
