The markets gapped up a little and spent three hours drifting into the gap fill on what would normally be a horrible triple expiration volume number, but then tanked on news for 10 minutes and that caused the action and low of the day. We bounced off of that and then closed near the low on 3.3 billion NASDAQ shares, which is fine for triple expiration but means nothing.

Net ticks: -21 ticks.
