- QE3 rally halted- After last week's Federal Reserve inspired surge where each U.S. market gained at least 2%, stocks opened lower Monday. The selling pressure might not last long though as investors are ready to profit off of the Fed's latest moves. "It looks like we need to take a small breather after the sizable rally that we've had," Randy Frederick, managing director of active trading and derivatives at Charles Schwab Corp., told Bloomberg News. "There's the potential for a small pull-back, but I think we will move back into the bull territory later in the week unless there's an unexpected negative news event."
The major headlines in the stock market today include Europe putting a stop to the QE3 rally, another negative manufacturing report and a couple of stocks continuing to soar.
