The U.S. Stock market did show some stability as the major indexes rebounded from the big drop last week.


The Euro fell for a second day yesterday as concerns escalated that region’s most-indebted nations will continue struggle to contain their deficits. The single currency slipped about 0.2% to trade around $1.2642 during the late U.S session yesterday.
