The SkyNet SellBots ruled the day, sending US stocks sharply lower on (surprise) new fears that the trade war with China might indeed become a reality. At precisely 3:00 PM EDT (funny how that happens), the SkyNet BuyBots stepped in and cut the day’s losses by about a quarter.  But still, the DJIA ended down 286 points (1.1%) and the NASDAQ tanked 123 points (1.6%).

Stay tuned as the battle of the SkyNet StockBots continues!
