For the third day in a row, US stocks got smashed, bashed and trashed as the SkyNet SellBots took control in the overnight futures, sending US stocks sharply lower at the open of trading. From there, stocks zigged and zagged to close near the lows of the day. The DJIA plunged 632 points (2.5%) and the NASDAQ got smacked again, for 465 points (4.1%). Gold and silver continued to consolidate recent gains.

Stay tuned as the battle of the SkyNet StockBots continues.
