Stock Markets Take Major Tumble
Stock markets across the board are making history but not in the best way.
The Dow tumbled more than 830 points on Wednesday.
The S&P 500 declined for the fifth day in a row and the Nasdaq is down eight percent this month.
Economists say this is because investors are afraid of interest rates going up.
Usually, that’s a sign of a strong economy indicated from unemployment rates being at the lowest level in almost fifty years.
There are also some worries about the Chinese economy due to a trade war between the U.S. and China.
All of these factors are coming together to create a bumpy October for investors.
