The Nasdaq index leads a down day in the US stock market
Nasdaq is down -1.51%
The Nasdaq index has led a down day in the US stock market. The price of that index fell back below its 50 hour MA (a bearish tilt to the downside) and stayed below.

He said that 50 bps at the next meeting would be stretch.
The 100 hour MA was approached at 7864, but it was a stretch for today to get all the way there today.
