Dow Jones drops more than 500 points, suffers second day of huge losses

Posted: Updated:
New York -

Stocks are tumbling for a second straight day, with the Dow Jones Industrials falling as much as 2.5 percent and the benchmark S&P 500 suffering a similar decline.
  
This would mark the sixth straight day of losses for the market, which has been rattled by rising interest rates, signs of a slowdown in the global economy and the U.S.-China trade dispute.
  
All of those factors could threaten the impressive profits Corporate America has been reporting this year.
  
The Dow was down 506 points, or 2 percent, to 25,092. The S&P 500 slipped 55 points, or 2 percent, to 2,730.
  
All 11 sectors in the S&P 500 are lower, with banks and energy stocks the hardest hit.
  
The Nasdaq fell 99 points, or 1.3 percent, to 7,322.

Earnings season is getting underway. Delta Air Lines shares rose 3.8 percent after the airline beat profit expectations.
  
The S&P 500 index fell 4 points, or 0.1 percent, to 2,781.
  
The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 101 points, or 0.4 percent, to 25,497. The Nasdaq composite rose less than a point to 7,422.
