The Associated Press reports:
Dow Jones industrials plunged over 1,000 points Thursday, bringing the index down 10 percent from the record it reached two weeks ago. Stocks started to fall in early trading and extended their losses throughout the morning. The market’s turmoil began last Friday and has continued this week as investors worried about early signs of inflation. Analysts have also been saying the market has gotten much too expensive after a huge run-up over the last year and has been long overdue for a pullback.
