Wall Street continued a broad selloff Monday, as the Dow plunged a record 1,175 points amid growing inflation fears.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 24,345, down 4.6%. The S&P 500 fell 113 points, or 4.1%, to 2,648. The Nasdaq Composite dropped 273 points, or 3.78%, to 6,967.
The Dow fell as much as 1,597 points in afternoon trading, the largest intraday drop in history. The blue-chip index’s 4.6% decline reflected its worst day since at least Aug. 10, 2011. Coming off its worst week in two years, the Dow wiped out its 2018 gains with its pullback Monday.
