Stocks stumbled out the gate and have been, for the most part, grappling for direction. Early weakness is subsiding, but the problem seems to be a lack of a catalyst.

These kinds of sessions after the jobs report and three-day weekend are not unusual. There is an eclectic mix of winners that include reopening names, even as the delta variant cast a shadow over the market and economy.

This week could get a spark if President Biden renominates Jerome Powell, which could happen as soon as tomorrow. 

Also, the next round of earnings will start hitting the tape soon and that's exciting. There will be another wave of IPOs which could be hit or miss but do add a spark anyway.

We are not forcing the issue this afternoon.
