    Stocks fell sharply Wednesday as worries about Europe's debt, specifically the Spanish banking system,again shook confidence.
    Investors flooded into U.S. Treasuries, raising prices and pushing the yield on the benchmark 10-year note down to a record low of 1.656%.

    Apartment Loan rates and This Is Clearly Going To Cost JPMorgan Much More Than $2 Billion

    JPMorgan announced a $2 billion loss Friday. When compared to its market cap and other indicators, that goes Ouch!, but not much more. However, there’s more going on.
