Some green enters the screen a half hour after a big down open, with Apple and Hewlett-Packard (after an upgrade) notably higher. Not surprisingly banks are feeling the brunt of what's left of the EU bank-induced selloff, the XLF -1.4%. SPY -0.8%, DIA -0.4%, QQQ -0.6%. Europe's about 1% off the lows, the Stoxx 50 (FEZ) -1.5%.

    Apparently, the folks that wrote this market current don't have gold stocks on their screen. Of course, it isn't happening if they don't see it. Schrödinger was right after all.

    Not exactly. It is the anticipated dividend raise in a week or so of the anniversary of its first dividend announcement today.
