NEW YORK (AP) -- Stocks are weakening as investors worry that the economy is poised to weaken even as frozen credit markets slowly start to show signs of recovery.
Corporate profit forecasts, a jump in the dollar and falling oil prices Wednesday indicate investors are worried that an economic slowdown will sweep the globe.
The major indexes each lost more than 5 percent, including the Dow Jones industrials which is down 560 at the 8,473 level after falling as much as 698 points.
