Major Market Movers: More Horror!!!

After a month's cycle of tries that can not be underestimated in attempts to disclose the most adequate resolution to the current housing distress and the accompanying mortgages defaults after a 50 basis point cut; the data today provided further proof that the slump in the sector awaits the verdict in next week's FOMC decision…
