once again as high interest rates and hawkish Fed-speak continue to spark a
correction in U.S. stocks off last week's highs. World markets are a little
more mixed, with China's stock market continuing to find support. Tuesday, the
Chinese government lowered interest rates by a 1/4 point in an effort to
stimulate their economy.
