S&P 500 erased all of its gains for 2018 to mark 1.1% year-to-date decline as trade-war anxieties intensify

Thursday March 22nd, 2018 07:30:42 PM
The S&P 500 index on Thursday turned sharply negative for 2018, erasing its year-to-date gain amid a broad downturn for Wall Street equities. The S&P 500 index had narrowly been in positive territory to start the session but a sharp decline on the back of intensifying trade-war concerns helped to push the broad-market index into into negative territory, off 1.1% for the year, joining the Dow Jones Industrial Average , which also is down by 3.1% for the year. The S&P 500 finished down 2.5% at 2,644. The Nasdaq Composite Index remains positive for 2018, up 3%, but on the session, closed down 2.4% or 178 points at 7,166. The downdraft for stocks also comes after the Federal Reserve lifted interest-rates a quarter-of-a percentage point on Wednesday, and signaled that it planned on raising rates at a more rapid clip in coming years.

Dow's roughly 724-point decline marks worst 1-day stumble in 6 weeks

Thursday March 22nd, 2018 07:13:38 PM
The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished sharply lower as losses gathered steam late Thursday, producing the worst loss in a single-session for the blue-chip gauge since Feb.8. Back then in early February, the Dow fell 1,033 points, or 4.2%, as inflation fears perked up. Thursday's downtrend, which was broad based, came as investors fretted about the effect of a potential trade war between China and the U.S., and as the market digested the latest policy update from the Federal Reserve. Reports of the resignation of President Donald Trump's lead attorney, handling the Russia probe, also appeared to rattle investor confidence. The Dow closed down about 724 points, or 2.9%, at 23,958. More broadly, the S&P 500 index ended down by 2.5% at 2,644, while the Nasdaq Composite Index was off 2.4% at 7,166.
