Stocks Tumble on Economic Worries

Feeding the gloom Wednesday morning was a weaker-than-expected report on U.S. consumer spending. Traders said swings across financial markets appeared to be magnified by investors – particularly hedge funds – scrambling to exit money-losing investments.” Once again, we have to wonder if this is a recovery or just a mirage.
