The SkyNet BuyBots took control in the overnight futures session, sending US stocks sharply higher at the open of trading on Wall Street. At precisely 11:15 AM EST (“funny” how that happens), the SellBots stepped in and reversed the market’s course, leading to a narrowly mixed close. In a statistical rarity, the DJIA ended exactly unchanged. The NASDAQ gained 21 points (0.2%).

Stay tuned as the battle of the SkyNet StockBots continues.
