(Newser) – Markets were off today as falling oil prices put the press on the energy sector and Wall Street took a stern look at the recent rally, the Wall Street Journal reports. Though tech stocks surged, bringing NASDAQ up, oil prices were off and health care concerns tumbled. The financial sector saw gains and losses on earnings reports. The Dow was down 34.68, to 8.881.26. The S&P fell .51, to 954.07, and NASDAQ tacked on 10.18 to end at 1,926.38.
