Stocks/Indices

Wesaw the top stocks on Wall Street tumble for the second straight trading day. Traders just do not feel that now is the time for them to go short on stocks these days. This is due to the lack of returns which are in it for them. In addition, U.S. equities were every much overbought during the previous week of trading. Therefore, the losses which we are seeing at the moment are not a surprise.

The Dow Jones slumped a whopping 0.7 percent to the 16,818.13 level. The S&P 500 Index tumbled 0.64 percent to 1,949.98.
