After The Bell Market Commentary

According to Bernard Schmitt, "On Monday, the dollar was mixed against other major currencies, while gold prices rose. Investors were hard-pressed to extend last week's rally and profit-taking came on extremely light volume. The markets closed modestly lower as crude oil prices surged. Iran's nuclear ambitions sent oil prices up $1.31 to close at $72.45 a barrel. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 36.42, or 0.32 percent, to 11,345.05. The Nasdaq composite index fell 16.20, or 0.75 percent, to 2,147.75. The Standard & Poor's 500 index lost 4.78, or 0.37 percent, to 1,297.52. The Russell 2000 index fell 6.35, or 0.89 percent, to 705.33."
