The market was down today, but given the mood, it could have been a lot worse.
Before the market opened, traders had visions of a furious, half-day, with all kinds of circuit breaker kicking in. In the end, it was just a really solid down day, with the indices all falling a bit more than 1%. The Dow only lost about 154. The NASDAQ lost 1.7%.
Oil made a big comeback, paring its early losses, and ending down only about 2%.
