Regarding today's session the ecPulse.com analysis team comments: U.S stocks declined by the end of today's trading session as the worst than expected fundamentals released from the U.S. economy, whereas the trade deficit widened to $36.4 billion in the month of November, while China on the other hand increased the required reserves for banks in a step that was seen to hurt economic growth. However, we witnessed a drop in financial stocks, along with the drop that we witnessed in the S&P 500 for the first time in 2010 due to pessimism that dominated markets after Alcoa Inc results failed to meet expectations.
