NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / September 10, 2018 / Wall Street plunged on Friday after the Trump administration announced tariffs on another $267 billion worth of Chinese goods, pressuring the S&P 500 and Nasdaq to close down for the fourth consecutive session. The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 0.31 percent to close at 25,916.54, while the S&P 500 Index decreased 0.22 percent to close at 2,871.68. The Nasdaq Composite Index fell 0.25 percent to close at 7,902.54. For the week Nasdaq slumped 2.6 percent, while Dow Jones and S&P 500 shed 0.2 percent and 1.0 percent, respectively.

“The tech weakness and trade do concern me to a degree. You don’t have a good market if tech isn’t a leader, and there’s no doubt that tariffs and weakness in China could become a bigger concern if the issue starts to spill out over into the U.S. more,” said Wayne Kaufman, Phoenix Financial Services’ chief market analyst.
