While investors were absolutely cheering the ECB’s bond-buying program earlier this month, they’ve quickly reverted to their old pessimism, and now the market is trading like Europe is back on the ropes.
European stocks fell almost 1% today. Even the region’s strongest link right now, Germany, is showing cracks. The German business sentiment index fell again in September, the fifth straight month it’s done so. The index now trades at its lowest level since the beginning of 2010.
All this sourness dragged all three of the major indices lower this morning, only to see them regain most of the lost ground by late trading.
Even though it was a down day though, two dow stocks still managed to roar higher.
