The Dow lost 127 points at today’s close. But it was an up week for the markets after last week’s carnage. Lackluster economic data and signs of an easing in the credit markets continue to create volatility on Wall Street.
I found two meanings of "ease" in the dictionary which are easily confused.One is "become less painful,severe" and another is "lower in price or value". Which one should be used in this context? Thanks.
It indicates that the problems are becoming less severe, so the first definition is the one.
