Anemic at Best

I can't think of a better description for the markets lately.  Low volume, no excitement after the first hour until the last five minutes of trading - boring!  Other words that come to mind: stalled, stagnant, nervous, cautious, precarious, ambivalent, tentative, you get the picture.  Help me out here, how would you describe the equity markets at present?  Here's another thought: perhaps main street retail investors have permanently abandoned the stock market.
