Third straight day of losses for US stocks


US stocks posted their third straight day of losses yesterday, with every day of thirdquarter earnings season so far ending in the red.

United Airlines was also amongst the worst performers, closing the day 3.8 lower in reaction to the 1.8bn loss it reported in its earnings report after the market closed on Wednesday.
