Stocks got smoked on Monday, extending last week’s sell-off, which was already the worst week since 2016.
After a wild start to the trading day that saw markets open deep in the red before rallying to turn positive, markets slid again throughout the afternoon with the Dow losing as much as 1,597 points by mid-afternoon.
Monday marked the largest single-day decline for the blue chip index on a points basis, though the percentage losses seen Monday are far from the worst in the Dow’s history.
Did you expect the selloff to start so precipitously today, after Friday's drop?
