Stocks in the U.S. and Europe are steady, despite another big drop in China. The Shanghai Composite Index fell 5.3 percent today, amid concerns over a slowdown in that country. Last week, sharp declines in China's stock market sent ripples through markets around the world, including in the U.S., where Wall Street saw its worst start to the year ever.
