We had quarterly futures contract roll Friday, moving the December (Z5) contract. This basically means that the big players sit out for a day while the technicals settled. This happens once per quarter. Mixed results to go with that on the Opening Range plays. See that section below. NASDAQ volume was only 1.5 billion shares.

Net ticks: +0 ticks.
