The Major Indexes began the week modestly lower Monday as concerns over the global economy deepened following a weak trade report out of China and lukewarm growth in Japan. The Dow dipped 0.2%, while the S&P 500 lost a meager 0.05% and Nasdaq lost a slight 0.04%.
Stock prices fell again Tuesday as commodity prices continued to suffer from Chinese trade data, and concerns mounted over the tension between Russia and Ukraine causing investors to book profits. The Dow shed 67.43 points, or 0.4%, the S&P 500 slid 9.54 points, or 0.5%, and the Nasdaq faltered 27.26 points, or 0.6%.
