There do seem to be markups today as many of the widely held names are doing quite well (AAPL, AMZN, IBM, AXP, HD etc.) . However, the continued liquidation in commodities are hitting the rest of the market very hard. Depending on what you own you can be having a much better day than the averages or much worse.
We are flattish for the past two days but my portfolio is down nearly 1% over that period. There are few things more annoying for me than underperforming a sideways market.
