How major US stock indexes fared Thursday

The stock market had its biggest drop since the Black Monday crash of 1987 Thursday as fears of economic fallout from the coronavirus crisis deepened. The sell-off, which sent the Dow industrials down 10%, came despite supportive steps from the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank.

The steep drops over the last month have wiped out most of the big run-up on Wall Street since President Donald Trump's inauguration. On Thursday: The S&P 500 index fell 260.74 points, or 9.5%, to 2,480.64.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 2,352.60 points, or 10%, to 21,200.62. The Nasdaq dropped 750.25 points, or 9.4%, to 7,201.80. The Russell 2000 index of smaller company stocks gave up 141.39 points, or 11.2%, to 1,122.91.

For the week: The S&P 500 is down 491.73 points, or 16.5%. The Dow is down 4,664.16 points, or 18%. The Nasdaq is down 1,373.82 points, or 16%. The Russell 2000 is down 326.31 points, or 22.5%. For the year:

The S&P 500 is down 750.14 points, or 23.2%. The Dow is down 7,337.82 points, or 25.7%. The Nasdaq is down 1,770.80 points, or 19.7%. The Russell 2000 is down 545.55 points, or 32.7%.
