Stocks on Wall Street were lower, as earnings, particularly from the technology sector, disappointed. Stock futures were lower following yesterday’s big advance but closed the pre-market trading session just slightly below fair value. There were no economic numbers released before the open so investors focused on the earnings reports from companies including IBM (IBM) and Intel (INTC). The market opened at its session highs and quickly moved lower by roughly 0.5%, where it sat for several hours. The market selling then picked up in the afternoon, with the indices hitting session lows and struggling the rest of the day...
