"Odd day," said our head trader Todd Harrison, as the bell ran in the background. He's right. It was very odd.

It was odd for the bears, because you would think they could have delivered more pain given the wave of nausea that swept through Asia and Europe.

But it was odd for the bulls. They had the ball. They had the momentum.

But they still ended up botching the day. They were like a 15th seed taking it to

Duke

for most of the game only to let Duke back in in the final minutes.

It was an unresolved game, one that encouraged both camps. So we will to have a rematch tomorrow!
