Stock Market Today: September 4, 2015
Investors were taken on a roller-coaster ride this week, as the major averages fell notably over the first two trading days, punctuated by Tuesday’s sharp selloff, rebounded nicely during Wednesday’s bullish session, extended those gains in the first half of yesterday’s session, before the selling picked up again in the early afternoon hours. That move lower continued today. The major equity indexes were sharply lower at the get-go and the bears never let up, actually tightening their grip on trading as the week came to close. The month of September, which historically has been a difficult one for those long equities, is not off to a good start.
