Dow slides nearly 240 as fear returns to market
Is the honeymoon period between Wall Street and President Trump over?
The Dow fell by about 238 points Tuesday, a drop of more than 1%. It was its biggest slide of the year and biggest decline since the election. The broader S&P 500 was also down more than 1%.
Neither index had ended the day with a 1% drop since mid-October. This was their worst day since September.
The Nasdaq, which includes many hot tech stocks such as Apple, Facebook and Amazon, fell nearly 2%.
