Markets fall on Spanish debt woes
O

n Monday, stock markets fell for the second session in a row over concerns that debt-embattled Spain would soon need an expensive bailout from the European Union. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 101.11 points, or 0.8 percent, to close at 12,721.46. Investors were also unnerved by a rare quarterly loss from the global fast-food chain McDonald's, which appeared to signal tougher economic conditions for companies around the world.
