A Day Of Mixed Messages

A strange day, full of mixed signals.

Strong economic news early on from new home sales and durable goods.

Financials and techs started off strong, but sold off midday on a disappointing 5-year bond auction and Moody's downgrade of the debt ratings of Wells Fargoand Bank of America .

Still, half of the financials were up, the other half were not, and the selloff did not come on heavy volume.
