With the overnight news of Iran’s missile attacks on US forces stationed in Iraq, the SkyNet SellBots went wild, sending US stock futures sharply lower and gold sharply higher. But with the US response muted and no immediate escalation of hostilities, the BuyBots stormed in and erased all of the overnight panic selling and then some. The DJIA ended higher by 161 points (0.6%) and the NASDAQ gained 61 points (0.6%).

Stay tuned as the battle of the SkyNet StockBots continues.
