Well that was quick.
After being up nicely in November, stocks have erased most of the month’s gains following back-to-back-to-back losses.
Things were rocky from the start today.
After a lower open, stocks continued to slide all morning long. There was a pause in the sell-off around 11:30am ET. Then the major indices traded sideways until another push lower into the close.
Today it was Apple (AAPL) weighing on the markets. Down 5.0%, Apple closed at levels not seen since July.
