Stocks rallying off earlier losses as Greek leaders set a meeting for tomorrow in an effort to prevent a possible exit from the Euro. Traders say that meeting is supposed to take place at 7am New York time on Tuesday. Uncertainty surrounding the effects of that country's withdrawal from the Euro sent the major averages sharply lower at the open.
Among big losers on the Dow - JP Morgan (NYSE:JPM). Those shares continue to fall after the bank's $2 billion dollar trading loss announced last week. Today the firm's chief investment officer Ina Drew announced her retirement.
One bright spot in the Dow -Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO) rising 1-3/4% after losing almost 14% of its value last week on lower than expected earnings guidance.
Heading into the last hour of trading, all three major indexes were down around half a percent.
In addition to news out of Greece early tomorrow morning investors will have plenty of economic data to sort out, starting with the consumer price index and retail sales. A little later in the morning we'll take a look at business inventories and the housing market index.
