Editors Note:

The minimal profit taking from Monday turned into major declines on Tuesday. Rising interest rates and weaker than expected revenue from Home Depot were officially blamed but I think it was just the pause to refresh after 8 consecutive gain on the Dow. Having North Korea cancel talks with South Korea and threaten to cancel the summit did not help.
