Equities opened lower today, briefly attempted to reverse course, weakened again in the afternoon, but managed to finish off the session lows. The decline in stocks today coincided with a batch of soft economic reports and ongoing concerns about trade relations with China. At the close of the session, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 104 points; the S&P 500 Index was off 10 points; and the NASDAQ was lower by 29 points.
