It was another case of a Monday/Tuesday reversal on Wall Street yesterday, which has been a common theme for much of this year. On Monday, the major equity indexes, with the exception of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, fell on growing concerns that the Federal Reserve might move up the timeline for when it may begin to raise interest rates, a scenario that is historically greeted negatively by equity market participants. Read more
