Wall Street. Major U.S. stock-indexes fell
Major U.S. stock-indexes fell the sixth day, a streak unseen since August, as the Federal Reserve's comments about an economic slowdown and the prospect of Britain's possible exit from the European Union spooked investors. The Fed kept short-term interest rates unchanged on Wednesday but said it continued to expect two rate hikes this year. Fed Chair Janet Yellen sounded caution that the central bank needed to see more clear signs of economic strength before lifting rates.
