But a beating three hundred sixty eight points up at the best reading then down two hundred two at the worst reading of the day, and we closed little closer to the bad side. The good side. Dow was down fifty three points at twenty four thousand three seventy the NASDAQ was up eleven the SP average was virtually unchanged point in the broad market less than three hundred more stocks down than up. So actually as I look at it. I guess this was more of an unchanged marketed. Anything else volume was lighter than normal nine hundred eighty three million shares does it was an exciting day. Dow early on Wall Street seem to be seeing the good side of everything there were some power. Positive comments and speculation out of China. Maybe there were gonna cut the tariffs on US made cars and some Chinese officials in talk to the US officials, and they were working at a time line. And then in France macaroni had pledged hiked the minimum wage and also promised them tax relief. So they were coming down the UK's bought some time can like we did with the budget. They've kicked the Brexit vote down the road to January twenty first. So the pressure's off on Brexit. So we paved the way for a pretty good rally, and we had it was faltering a little bit. And it was just kind of running out of steam. And you're it was about the point where you sit and see are we going to, you know, be selling into the strength. Are we gonna by the strength to get this thing turned around? Well, they started selling into the strength, and it seemed to coincide with a really just bazaar fight. That was going on a verbal fight. There was going on a Bong Pelosi and and Schumer and the president of the United States and it played out before cameras, and it was very vocal. And it went on for ever like fifteen minutes, and it was all about shutting down the government and add the votes coming up.

And it killed off the rally crudes up seventy two cents fifty one seventy two goals down a dollar and a half at twelve forty seven ninety ten year rates up to two point eight percent.

This things been coming out for decades, and it's really uncanny. The number that came out today was strong anything over one hundred strong. It was four point eight.
