Stock and options exchanges are closed in the U.S. on Monday; this will be the first (unscheduled) market-wide shutdown since the 9/11 attacks due to the impending Hurricane Sandy. U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission announced that all trading of U.S. equities will be cancelled on Monday. Depending upon the impact of Sandy on Monday night, it is possible markets will be closed Tuesday as well.

As you can see in the graphic above, Futures are still trading.

Asian markets were mixed;  Crude is lower, but gasoline prices are ticking up. European markets fell modestly.

    SPX 1400 could be a buy through the end of the year IMO.

    During last summer’s river flooding in Omaha, there was much concern over a nuclear power plant and whether it was in danger. Hopefully we don’t have to worry about the nuke plant at Indian Head or Indian Point which serves NYC. Every time I read about that plant, it’s about how old and dated the facility is….

    Just tapped off this email message to another scientist friend:

    Thanks. Rhetorical questions: Have you noticed that all news outlets are saying that the full moon causes higher than usual tides? Is up down?

    Our grandkids will have their noodles filled with this stuff. Guess it doesn’t matter what the masses believe: only that they believe.


    BR: Always thought full moon tide means its in alignment with Sun — hence, maximum gravitational impact . . .
