هناك اسباب كثيرة اثرت على السوق ولكن اقوى سبب هو الشعور بالخوف من الهجمات بالاسهم الجرثومية بعد اكتشاف اصابة رابعة في نيويورك . NEW YORK (CBS.MW) -- An already wobbly market saw selling accelerate Friday as news circulated that a case of anthrax was reported in New York. An employee of General Electric's NBC unit is infected, according to MSNBC, with a form of the bacteria found on the skin of a worker at the NBC News offices in Rockefeller Center in New York City. Attempts to reach NBC for comment were unsuccessful. Three cases of an inhaled form of Anthrax have been reported in Florida. The market is trading on emotion and is extremely sensitive to any possible attack. We got some good news [on the earnings front] in the past sessions, but we still have to contend with so much uncertainty," remarked Scott Curtis, head of U.S. equity trading at Credit Lyonnais.
