Some last-minute buying barely reversed a last-half-hour slide where all sectors ground to a loss, even energy. Financials were a drag all day after some negative data, and ahead of tomorrow's FOMC statement. The Dow closes -0.5% (-48.97) to 10,452.08; S&P 500 -0.6% (-6.14) to 1,107.97; Nasdaq -0.5% (-11.05) to 2,201.05. Crude +1.7% to $70.71, reversing a nine-day losing streak. Gold flat at $1,124.
