Big Banks Fall (JPM, C, BAC, MS)


Bank stocks came under pressure once again today after reports surfaced that regulators are investigating whether they misled ratings agencies about the safety of certain mortgage-backed securities.

Reuters and The Associated Press both reported that the New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is investigating whether eight banks misled ratings agencies.
