Markets Open Sharply Down
The three-week stock rally opened Friday with a sharp pullback, as investors sold into the market to take some profits out and short-sellers readied for the weekend.
In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow is down about 117 points, or about 1.5 percent.
The broader S&P 500 is down about 1.6 percent and the Nasdaq is down almost 1.9 percent.
Analysts are saying this morning that the market drop is a normal part of the bear-market rally and a necessary correction to a Dow that's risen 13 percent in the past three weeks.
