The Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 are both steadily sinking lower this week ahead of the vote on health care. While the Dow had closed higher for weeks, it seems that this recent pullback has been a solidifying factor for the markets, but if they continue to slide it could be correction territory.
