With other blue chips not pulling their weight in the markets as quarterly reports are coming around the corner, the Dow/Jones looks like it could take a turn for the worse.

GE shares fell more than 3 percent after JPMorgan reaffirmed its underweight rating, saying earnings and business trends continue to deteriorate. Its shares have performed poorly this year, declining 21 percent through Wednesday versus the S&P 500’s 10 percent return. GE was the worst decliner in the Dow.

Other major financials also took a hit as well.

“Bank of America, Citigroup and Goldman Sachs were all down more than 1 percent, dragging down the major indexes. Financial sector declines come as rates continue to trickle downward, with the yield on the U.S. 10-year Treasury note falling to 2.06 percent. The 10-year note yield dipped below the critical 2.1 percent threshold Tuesday.”
