U.S. stocks fell Friday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average on track to close out its worst week and month since March, following a sharp selloff in big technology stocks.
The Dow dropped 0.8%. It has already shed more than 6% this week, putting it on track for its worst weekly performance since the height of the market tumult.
The S&P 500 fell 0.9% and tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite was down 1.6%.
Volatility has dominated markets this week, prompted by a record high in coronavirus infections in the U.S., fresh lockdowns in Europe that threaten economic growth, risks tied to the Nov. 3 elections and a mixed bag of earnings from big tech.
