Wall Street has found something scarier than tapering, taxes, and China Evergrande Group combined. The reasons for a pullback are many: The stock market has rallied for too long and has gone up too smoothly, the Federal Reserve is about to remove the bond buying that has helped prop markets up, taxes are ready to rise, economic data are slowing. For the S&P 500, it was the first close since June 18 below its 50-day moving average—a technical measure of the previous 50 days' closes that often ends up acting as support or resistance and that currently sits at 4436.35.

The disease's name comes from its visible side effect: thin white stripes that appear on the meat's surface.

For one, the size of the donation is curious: It's double the amount of Gaetz's second-largest donation ever, and it's $22,000 more than the campaign's combined gifts to close ally Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL).
