It was another down day for the markets as investors took in some lackluster economic data from the jobs and housing sector.
The Labor Department is reporting that initial jobless claims fell 2000 last week, to a seasonally adjusted 386,000.
Economists were expecting a bigger drop in claims, to 370,000.
Meanwhile, existing home sales in the US fell 2.6 percent in March to an annual rate of 4.48 million, according to the National Association of Realtors.
On the earnings front, Verizon (NYSE:
VZ) topped expectations with its earnings report, as did DuPont (NYSE: DD) and Travelers (NYSE: TRV).
Among the big banks reporting earnings results, were Morgan Stanley (NYSE:
MS) and Bank of America (NYSE: BAC). Both banks managed to beat analyst expectations, despite a drop in profits.
Tomorrow, we'll get a look at earnings results from GE (NYSE:
GE) and McDonalds (NYSE: MCD).
