4:15 pm: The major averages spent the entire session in a steady downtrend, but despite persistent selling pressure, today's losses were limited in scope. The Dow, S&P 500, and Nasdaq shed between 0.2% and 0.3% while the Russell 2000 lagged, falling 0.9%. The underperformance of the Russell 2000 was likely owed in part to tax-loss selling, which tends to pick up this time of year. Small-caps often feel that pinch in a stronger fashion than large-cap issues since individual retail investors factor more prominently in the behavior of small-cap stocks. Large-cap stocks, on …

4:20 pm: There wasn't a lot of excitement in the stock market today and there is nothing wrong with that. After rallying in broad-based fashion on Friday, the major indices stood their ground (for the most part) amid a lack of conviction from buyers and sellers alike.Today wasn't a case so much of the stock market going up as it was a case of some influential stocks going up to keep the major indices on a winning path. In fact, decliners were just about even with advancers at the NYSE and led by a 3-to-2 margin on the Nasdaq.Apple (AAPL 566.43, +6.41) and Google (GOOG …

3:00 pm: The final hour is upon us. Stocks are showing modest gains and the 10-yr note is now unchanged for the session. To be sure, dynamic is not a word that would be used to describe today's trading action in either the stock or bond market. Resilient is probably the better fit.Neither the stock nor the bond market has caved to selling interest after Friday's advance.
There wasn't any economic data out of the US that affected trading today. Tomorrow is light with the Wholesale Inventories and JOLTS - Job Opening reports for October the only items on the calendar. …

10:00 am: The major indices continue to hold a winning edge, the sharpest of which belongs to the Nasdaq. The latter has risen 0.4% today and it is easy to see why with both Google (GOOG 1080.27, +10.40) and Apple (AAPL 563.46, +3.44) posting early gains. Facebook (FB 48.28, +0.34), Twitter (TWTR 47.53, +2.58) and LinkedIn (LNKD 235.71, +2.72) are some other luminaries still attracting buying interest.Overall, there simply hasn't been a rush to take profits from Friday's rally. The S&P 500 is roughly two points away from a new, all-time intraday high with some …
