They say it was the biggest down day of the year. Don't mean to always be complaining how bad stock trading is. But jeez, there was barely a trade to be had after 10:30. Stocks seem to have lost all their personality in this environment. Its either mark them up 2-3% or mark them down 2-3%. The only trade today was to Arb the open and sell stocks that didn't open low enough. There were a few other traders here and there (a fizzle in the oils, a quick pop in defense then a fizzle, a slow bleed in many stocks ect). P.S. I love to complain.
