About that market rally. 

Emerging Market Stocks Tank

Emerging market stocks are getting smashed again on trade war and slowing growth fears. Unfortunately for U.S. investors, markets are beginning to pay attention to the action overseas.

Strength in the U.S. dollar is also not helping market sentiment as Wall Street returns after the slow summer season.

Social Media Gets Grilled

Facebook (FB) - Get Report COO Sheryl Sandberg and Twitter (TWTR) - Get Report CEO Jack Dorsey will be grilled on their operations by lawmakers today. Be sure to follow TheStreet for live analysis of the spectacle. 

After challenging second quarters for each, these top execs have their work cut out for them to jump-start market sentiment while also fighting off politicians.

Around TheStreet
