Markets were down so far on Monday, with all major indexes falling at the time of this writing. While the technology sector, buoyed by strong earnings reports last week, remains red hot, other sectors fell broadly as investors took profits after last week’s impressive bull run. Industrials and Consumer Discretionaries were loss leading sectors.
