US major indices take it on the chin

Twenty-four hours ago, the markets were looking forward to a corrective move higher after the FOMC put 75 basis points off the table going forward. However, the broader Nasdaq and S&P were closing right around the 100 hour MA. The technicals were not in “clear sailing” seas.

Today, the indices opened lower and some pretty poor productivity data (worst since 1947) turned the buyers into sellers and that selling did not abate for most of the day.
