Yesterday’s party turned into a massive hangover headache today, as events in Syria put an end to the New Year’s celebration. The SkyNet SellBots took control in the overnight futures session, sending US stocks sharply lower at the open of trading on Wall Street. From there, stocks zigged and zagged and ended close to where they opened. The DJIA tumbled up 234 points (0.8%) and the NASDAQ sank 71 points (0.8%).
Stay tuned as the battle of the SkyNet StockBots continues.
