It’s been a volatile day in the markets, as DC plays its final moves before the Fiscal Cliff goes into effect.
Markets had been down for much of the morning, but had started ticking a bit higher right around the time people caught wind of Scott Brown’s Facebook posting about Obama having sent an offer to the GOP.
But that was quickly rebuffed by a tweet from CNBC’s John Harwood denying that The White House had sent an offer over.
Since then there’s been confusion.
Some are reporting/still expecting the White House to send over some kind of framework idea for a last minute punt on the issue.
But markets are stuck in an ugly place in the final two hours of the day.
