Over halfway through the trading day on Tuesday, and the broad markets have yet to make up their minds. For the most part, the S&P 500 and Dow Jones industrial average have been trading sideways, albeit a little negative. The Nasdaq has picked up slightly, and the Russell 2000 is having the best showing out of the group.
