A gap and go session that was mostly a drift higher and showed very little excitement throughout. The NASDAQ was dead flat early after the gap, while the ES drifted higher, but then things flattened out over lunch and resumed the climb in the afternoon. NASDAQ volume closed at 1.7 billion shares.

Net ticks: +0 ticks.
