Dow and S&P head south
On Monday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 sank in volatile trade because a boost from news in Italy and China receded and losses in energy as well as financial stocks put pressure, although profits in technology equities helped to restrict losses. What’s more, they had the Nasdaq lifted.
The Dow fluctuated between profits and dips of more than 100 points, pointing to the choppiness in American shares because they struggle to revive from a recent selloff, with the earnings season gathering steam.
The market started up, underpinned by a leap in China equities along with upbeat sentiment across the European Union on Moody's decision to keep the Italian sovereign rating outlook firm.

While gains of S&P 500 companies are anticipated to have surged approximately 22% in the third quarter, the overall outlook for future surge is clouded because of worries over trade, soaring costs as well as other factors.
Furthermore, energy equities dived by 1.38%, suppressed by lower oil prices as well as Halliburton's warning that fourth-quarter gains would miss forecasts against the backdrop of everlasting weakness in the North American hydraulic fracturing market.
Both Halliburton as well as its counterpart slumped by 3.2%.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average dived by 0.45% being worth 25,329.07. As for the S&P 500, it declined by 0.31% hitting 2,759.26. The Nasdaq Composite surged by 0.42% reaching 7,480.51.
