All three major indexes settled with losses today, brushing off modest midday gains and this morning's upbeat ADP private payrolls data. Despite a softening labor market -- a good sign for the Federal Reserve's interest rate policy -- the Dow and S&P 500 are now mired in a three-day losing streak. Despite the skid, Wall Street's "fear gauge," the Cboe Volatility Index (VIX), was range-bound and remains near annual low levels.

  • Bull signal flashing for CME Group stock
  • JP Morgan chiming in on the energy sector today. 
  • Plus, two credit card stocks in focus; a travel stock for bulls; and PYPL downgraded.
