Stock Market Today: July 6, 2015
After opening sharply lower, the major U.S. Stock market indexes partially recovered in the late morning hours, helped, in part, by some encouraging U.S. economic data. Then the selling picked up again after the noon hour on the East Coast before some bargain hunters again returned late in the session and the losses were pared for the second time heading into the closing bell. The volatility was caused by Greece, which remains in the spotlight. Investors continued to weigh the implications of the country's recent default on its IMF loan and consider the possibility of its exit from the euro zone.
