Again, the SkyNet SellBots took control in the overnight futures session, sending US stocks sharply lower at the open of trading on Wall Street. But the BuyBots bought right in and halted the decline. From there, stocks zigged and zagged into a mixed close.  The DJIA gained 47 points (0.1%) and the NASDAQ slipped 28 points (0.2%). Gold and silver edged higher.

Stay tuned as the battle of the SkyNet StockBots continues.
