Dow slides 450 points on trade fears; Oil plunges as OPEC debates supply cut

By  | 

Stocks opened lower Thursday amid investor anxiety over the U.S. China trade truce, knocking more than 450 points off the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

The Dow plunged 2.8 -Percent as the S&P 500 lost 2.6 percent and the Nasdaq fell 2 percent.

China trade concerns were worsened by the arrest of the CFO of Huawei, a Chinese telecom and consumer-electronics company.

Oil prices were also down, tumbling nearly three percent after Saudi Arabia indicated OPEC may cut supply by less than investors were expecting.
