The Summer Vacation Pattern continued today as the SkyNet StockBots set the tone for the day in the overnight futures session. The BuyBots bid up prices before the open of trading on Wall Street, sending US stocks sharply higher. From there, yet again, stocks zigged and zagged and went a net nowhere. The DJIA ended higher by 240 points (0.9%) and the NASDAQ jumped 72 points (0.9%).

Stay tuned as the battle of the SkyNet StockBots continues.
