Stocks were off to the races early on today. Apple (AAPL) was trading at record highs and the major indices were sitting on some nice gains at the open.
But after the strong start, things quieted down, and the major indices were sideways until late afternoon.
Stocks were finally moving again after President Trump tweeted that he will announce whether or not he’ll pull out of the Iran nuclear deal on Tuesday at 2pm ET.
Trump has threatened to pull out of the agreement, even though U.S. allies are lobbying for the U.S. to stay committed to the deal.
Traders didn’t seem to like Trump’s tweet. The major indices pulled back on the news, giving up a portion of today’s early gains.
