U.S. stocks dropped in morning trading on Monday as investors wait anxiously for the Federal Reserve’s interest rate meeting this week even as worries of halting growth in China continue to shake up global markets. Stocks are projected to stay volatile in the run- up to the policy meeting on Wednesday and Thursday, when the Fed is predicted to make a decision on its first interest rate hike since 2006. “The uncertainty is so high in regard to the announcement … it leaves investors a little bit paralyzed relative to what to do in anticipation thereof,” stated Mark Luschini, chief investment strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott.
