    End of Day, Cause and Effect

    Expectations are still low for this week

    Closing Bell: The NASDAQ closed UP +4.05 (+0.13%) to 3,081.19 while the DOW is also UP +4.49 (+0.03%) to 13,107.48.

    EOD Commentary: Stocks held small gains Wednesday … following the Fed's Beige Book report, which showed the pace of economic growth which … expanded … gradually but manufacturing remained soft. Trading was largely thin and muted as investors seemed to remain cautious ahead of Fed's Bernanke's speech at the end of the week.

    RegMed stocks struggled again … but, squeezed out some small gains … in flat trading with low volume … in yet another lackluster session on Wednesday.

    Trading is expected to remain muted throughout the week amid the ending of summer holiday season.

    The CBOE volatility index traded still above 16. Breadth was evenly split, with universe gainers (13) equaling losers (13) leading wth flats (2).

    Who is up … at the close:

    • Aastrom (ASTM) +$0.06 <+3.73%> to $1.67;
    • BioMimetic (NASDAQ:BMTI) +$0.10 <+2.64%> to $3.89;
