Up, Down and Sideways

In all the years that I have been following the stock markets, there are times that I am still amazed at how they perform. (Like all the time). On September 25 the Dow Jones Industrial Average Index, arguably the most followed and reported on stock market index, opened at 10,827.70. Today, October 1, it closed at 10, 831.07. That is movement of 3.37 points, or +0.03% growth. Essentially flat.

If I had been living in a cave since Thursday morning, and came out this afternoon for some fresh air and a look at the Dow, I would say the market has been flat for the past week.

How about that? Sound crazy?
