The US stock indexes are falling at the beginning of the trading session. Investors are focused on the budget crisis which led the publishing of economic data by the Fed to a halt. This is the main reason for investors’ cautiousness at the moment. They would like to avoid risk and not bet on a trend which may lack fundamental support given the lack of information about the economic processes in the US.
The downward correction is also caused by the fact that the benchmark indexes hit new historic highs in September which was supported by Fed’s decision to keep the monetary easing policy intact.
Currently the US benchmark indexes are heading down, followed by the OTCM ADR Index which declined 0.72% to 1,493.70 in the first trading hour of today’s session.
Penny stocks traders also seem like not disposed to take risks today as most of the market movers on the OTC Markets are colored in red.

Today, however, investors are taking profits from their long positions as the stock value has jumped up 50% for nearly one week. The sell-out is also helped by the general market mood today. Therefore, shares of GSAT stock are currently trading 2% lower at $1.40 per share on a volume of 5.8 million.
The trade value generated by GSAT within the first trading hour of today’s session is $8.35 million.
