2008-12-26:  Another humdrum day in the stock market. Today's session saw a rise in the market indices of around half a percent, with the NASDAQ rising about 0.35% to close at 1,530, and the Dow and S&P 500 increasing about 0.5% to 8,516 and 873, respectively. Oil rose to $37.71 a barrel, and gold rose about $23.20 to $871.20 an ounce. The VIX fell minutely from 44.8 to 43.4.
    This is a quiet time of year and there may not be much action before January 2nd.
