Market recap: Stocks ended mixed in a lackluster session, as investors continued to consolidate gains after the market's run-up. FedEx warned that a slowdown in global manufacturing activity would hurt its bottom line. Homebuilder sentiment hit a six-year high, but the sector's stocks fell. Treasury prices rose, recouping another chunk of losses suffered last week. NYSE losers slightly outnumbered winners.

    Amazing to me that we never ever come close to a "sell off'.....only consolidate! Are we setting up for the mother of all selloffs? Complacency abounds!

    Agreed, this is looking like the quiet before the storm. I just cant see us smoothly increasing with the Q3 earnings coming, the fiscal cliff, and unrest everywhere in the world.
