Summary:

  • Stocks plunged today because one of Federal Reserve’s voting members Evans, indicated that the stimulus that’s being pumped into the economy ($85 Billion Per Month) has the possibility of stopping as soon as September. This scared investors and everyone began selling and pulling back, thus leading the market down for a second day.
  • Another reason shares dropped today because of weak sales from Retailers such as American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) and missed earnings because of low second quarter earnings.
