Markets Slip Again After Fed Minutes Released, Tech Shares Weak Again Wednesday (BAC)

Wall Street had another down day on Wednesday as minutes from the Federal Reserve's June meeting were released, despite the report signaling it may take steps in the near future to lift the economy. In that meeting the Fed announced that it would buy an additional $267 billion in long-term bonds, however it did not commit to embarking on another round of quantitative easing. Financial companies, led by Bank of America Corp. (BAC) turned in a mostly positive day, while oil rose 2.5 percent.
