There’s been another sharp drop in the markets this week, following a delayed vote on the GOP’s health care bill. FTN Financial’s Chris Low joins us to explain why there’s a connection between the two. Next, we’ll talk about one indie music label’s investment in vinyl records, and then look at the effect that interest rate hikes from the Fed will have on the automobile market.
