The SkyNet SellBots took control in the overnight futures session, sending US stocks sharply lower at the open of trading on Wall Street. The sell-off continued until precisely 12:00 PM (“funny” how that happens) when the BuyBots surfaced to start a bounce into the close that cut the day’s losses by about half.  The DJIA closed down 221 points (0.9%), and the NASDAQ sank 87 points (1.2%).

Stay tuned as the battle of the SkyNet StockBots continues!
