Market Reflections 8/24/2009
Markets were quiet Monday, reacting to overnight gains in Chinese markets that were reacting to Friday's big report on existing home sales and upbeat comments from Ben Bernanke. But stocks gave up early gains with the S&P ending fractionally lower at 1,025. Most commodities were fractionally higher with oil ending just below $75. The dollar index rose 0.3 percent to 78.25.
