Basic Materials sector is leading the losses in the S&P 500 in late trading today. At last check, the sector was down 1.04%. Technology sector has also fallen sharply today. At last check, the sector was trading 0.62% lower. Conglomerates are currently trading 0.65% lower, while Financials are currently trading 0.31% lower. Transportation sector has been the best performer in the S&P 500 today. At last check, the sector was trading 0.23% higher.

Earlier today, the Federal Reserve released the minutes of the most recent FOMC. The minutes showed that while Fed members backed the bond buying program to boost the economy, there were differences over how long the central bank should keep buying bonds. The Fed had announced another round of bond buying program to replace Operation Twist at its last FOMC. European markets ended mostly lower earlier today, with the EURO STOXX 50 Index closing 0.37% lower. Asian markets ended mostly higher overnight, with the Hang Seng Index in Hong Kong closing 0.37% higher.
