Major Indices down led by Dow breaking its 3-days winning streak, market wraps up
On Tuesday, left-overs from the fire selling yesterday affected the whole session, making the market extremely erratic and volatile. Major indexes ended up on the lower side of things as the aftermath of the hedge fund liquidation unfolds.
Yesterday, several well-known stocks got swiped off their feet as Bill Hwang, previous head of Tiger Management's office, was forced to sell $20 billion worth of stocks leading the fire sale and as investors predicted, it isn't over that day. On the other hand, some stocks that were impacted yesterday made wise moves and recovered some losses on today's session, such as Discovery and Viacom.
Let's take a peek at the market's overview:
