Morning Notes

Shares of banks slid Monday, dragging on major indexes worldwide. Investors sold bank shares in the U.S., Europe and Japan in the wake of recent central bank meetings that suggested easy money policies were likely to continue, with low interest rates typically hitting profits at financial firms. Financial shares were among the biggest decliners in the S&P 500. Some traders and investors said reports of capital issues at Deutsche Bank were adding to concerns about the sector. Deutsche Bank fell 7.5% to the lowest price in at least 20 years, according to FactSet. Several investors also said they were watching tonight's U.S. presidential debate for signs that a tightening race might break toward one candidate or the other and indications of how that might affect financial markets. A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found that 34% of registered voters expect the three presidential debates to be important in helping them decide how to vote. While stock markets have risen steadily over the summer, some investors expect the election, along with the price of oil, to trigger increased volatility in stock markets in October and November.
