All the major indices were down today as investors seem to have considered some of the data released last week and believe that economic growth is slowing down. There appears to be decreased consumer spending which leads to decreased hiring and other spillover effects. The continuing increase in Delta variant infections shows no signs of slowing and there is additional worry of spread with reopening of schools and universities. Young people have the highest rate of being unvaccinated and children under 12 are not eligible for the vaccine at all. There will be very little data this week to reassure markets about third quarter growth. There is also concern about whether the fiscal stimulus will be passed in Congress.
