The major market indices finished mostly lower for the first time in five weeks. The losses were mild and likely reflected profit taking in light of the strong gains in September, as well as portfolio jockeying associated with the ending of the third quarter.

Q3 review:

Thursday marked the end of the third quarter. After a disastrous second quarter, the major market indices snapped backed and posted strong gains. The rally in the quarter appeared to be a reflection of fading concerns over the durability of the U.S. economic recovery accompanied by a pledge from the Federal Reserve (the "Fed") to commit more stimulus if the recovery were to falter.
