Dow Skids 800 Out of the Gate

Newser — Polly Davis Doig

The Dow stumbled more than 800 points out of the gate on Wednesday, reports the Wall Street Journal, echoing markets around the globe a day after it closed out the worst quarter on record.

That was a 4% drop; the S&P 500 lost 3.8%, and the Nasdaq lost 3%. The losses came on the heels of President Trump's warning Tuesday that up to 240,000 Americans could die of the coronavirus.
