US stocks were under pressure from the SkyNet SellBots from the open of trading on Wall Street until precisely 11:45 AM (“funny” how that happens) when the BuyBots kicked into gear and pushed stocks into the green by the close. The DJIA eked out a gain of 3 points (0.4%) and the NASDAQ advanced 22 points (0.2%). Gold and silver continued their recent strong rallies.

Stay tuned as the battle of the SkyNet StockBots continues.
