The Awl's Morning Market Report:
â€¢ The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 46 points on Monday to close at 10,973.55 as investors greeted the news that Standing Cat Is Watching You. Stocks slipped this morning, though, as Wall Street parsed rumors that Standing Cat may just be some Asian chick in a really convincing cat suit.
â€¢ The Nasdaq picked up 26.95 points to close at 2429.53 on Monday as tech investors digested news of a possible Sandra Bullock/Jesse James sex tape — which, if it actually exists (a big if), would be the first non-male-on-male celebrity sex tape to feature two mustaches (Hitler and Dirty Sanchez). The Nasdaq gave up some of its gains this morning as investors realized that, should the tape surface, it may not play on the Apple's new iPad, which lacks Flash support for video playback.
