The SkyNet SellBots returned from Thanksgiving and gobbled up the action in the overnight futures session, sending US stocks sharply lower at the open of trading on Wall Street. From there, stocks diverged, with the NASDAQ bouncing and the Blue Chips treading water. The DJIA ended down 272 points (0.9%) and the NASDAQ slipped 7 points (0.1%). Gold and silver got whacked again but recovered into the close.

Stay tuned as the battle of the SkyNet StockBots continues.
