USA TODAY reporter covering everything Wall Street: the stock market's maddening mood swings; pundits' bull and bear rants; and the people that move markets!

Does Wall Street have another wild week ahead? — Investors head into the new trading week a lot less fearful and a lot less poorer - but still a bit on edge -- after the stock market recouped most of its big losses with a strong rebound rally Friday that capped off another turbulent week on Wall Street.

‘Stock-tober’ plunge is tame compared to 1987 Crash — Stocks are in rebound mode after breaking the bear's scary spell over the market. Let's put this year's frightful October on Wall Street into perspective. The 5.6% drop at the low yesterday doesn't even make the Top 1o worst Octobers.

After dark days, one stock guru sees ‘glimmer of hope’ — Wall Street strategist Thomas Lee of Fundstrat Global Advisors says there are "glimmers of hope" on Wall Street after a "downward spiral."

‘Fear’ trade reverses as end-of-world angst eases — When investors rush into the arms of so-called safe-haven investments - such as U.S. government bonds or cash - it's a sign of risk-aversion. That's what's been happening in the recent selloff. But the fear trade may be reversing. Money that was poring into U.S.

Stocks up at the open as markets calm — U.S. stock futures rose Friday as global markets traded calmer. An hour and a half before the 9:30 a.m. opening bell, the major pre-market Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq indexes are all up around 1%. European markets saw strong gains, with Germany's DAX index up nearly 2%.

In search of elusive stock market bottom — The first signs of seller exhaustion came Wednesday, when a 460-point Dow rout marked the bottom for the day and a nearly 300-point rebound ensued. The second clue came today, with the Dow erasing a 200-point drop. Is the bottom in?

Weekend stock dilemma: Hold or fold? — It's hard not to watch the stock market these days. The market has been on a roller coaster ride, and every tick of the Dow, both up - and down - has become must-see TV. Viewers are tuning into the money game as if it were the Super Bowl.

Stock market looks to dodge late-day selloff — It's been a crazy day with the Dow down as much as 460 points before trimming its losses to 290 points but the day isn't over yet. Late-day selling has killed the stock market the past three sessions.

Market shudders as stock bounce proves elusive — Investors hoping for a stock market bounce, got another massive selloff instead Wednesday morning. What's spooking Wall Street? USA Today's Adam Shell weighs in.

CEO-speak is one key to market stabilization — When CEOs speak, Wall Street listens. Especially when there's concern that a "growth shock" from outside the USA could short-circuit the good things happening at home with the U.S. economy. A key pillar of the U.S.
