"Virtu Financial, the high-frequency trading firm, filed preliminary papers to go public Monday evening. In the filing, Virtu said it had 2013 revenue of approximately $665 million, up 8% from the year before, and net income of $182 million, more than double from the year before. From the start of 2009 to the end of 2013, the company said, it had only one losing trading day." - MW

S&P started lower and ended higher; DDD started higher and ended lower. I am betting that the offset will go positive tomorrow.. we have had two consecutive days of serious tech stock selling today and Friday.
