Looking Ahead to Wednesday's MarketOctober 23, 2012 @ 4:27 PM EST
Quick Recap of Tuesday’s Session:
Stocks finished significantly lower on Tuesday. Major indices started the session plummeting following Moody’s downgrade of five Spanish regions and big earnings misses from Du Pont (DD) and 3M (MMM). The selling continued in early trading before the bulls stopped the bleeding around 10:35am EST. Stocks found some footing after that, rallying into the afternoon. However, negative action in Apple (AAPL) due to reactions over the company’s smaller iPad announcement and speculation ahead of its earnings announcement on Thursday dragged on markets towards the end of the day. Major indices finished in decidedly negative territory, though slightly higher than their intraday lows.
S&P 500 -1.44%, NASDAQ -0.88%, DJIA -1.82%, Midcaps -0.66%.
