Rollar Coaster Stock Market Up Down

Market performance stalled as all major indexes closed down for the second day in a row. On a positive note, Alcoa (AA) hit earnings estimates and raised its global aluminum outlook.

In 2013, Alcoa sees global aluminum demand growth of 7 percent, up from 6 percent in 2012 and ahead of the 6.5 percent rate required to meet the Companys forecast of a doubling in global aluminum demand between 2010 and 2020. Aluminum demand grew 10 percent in 2011 on top of 13 percent growth in 2010. (Business Wire)
