Profit Taking in USA Markets or something more ?

The market's move lower was unsurprising after the major indexes reached new 4 1/2-year highs Wednesday for the second time in a week. Also the crude still showing some resistance to fall, the futures prices remained elevated and worries about the resumption of Iran's nuclear research program weighed on the market. Iran is "not worried" about its possible referral to the UN Security Council over its nuclear programme, a senior nuclear official told state television on Thursday. The market also was pressured by downgrades for Coca-Cola Co. and J.P. Morgan Chase and earnings uncertainty.
