U.S. stocks fell across the board today, with 2,247 companies falling, leaving only 77 gainers.

    Beijing unleashed a barrage of support measures to arrest a slump that started in mid-June however, the relative calm on their market was shattered. Sources say that the China Securities Financial Corporation (CSFC) returned ahead of schedule, some of the loans it took to stabilize the stock market.

    At the beginning of July, CSFC became the regulator's weapon of choice, borrowing money from commercial banks to buy shares in Chinese stocks, as they tried to prop up the market. The move by the CSFC did give a lift to indexes which jumped nearly 20% from recent lows, until Monday's renewed decline.
