Welcome to our first weekly issue of the http://StockG.com Newsletter.

Market Overview
---------------

The market performed poorly for the previous week. The Dow was down 18.13 points or 0%, the NASDAQ was down 255.02 points or 6.4% lead by the semi-conductors and the S&P 500 was down 26.3 points or 1.76%. Though historically September is the worse performing month of the year. We expect some continued downside Monday and Tuesday with a possible turn-around on Wednesday.

Oil prices hit a new 10-year high this past week, which could affect inflation, which is bad for the market, though OPEC has agreed to raise its output by 800,000 barrels per day.
