UK downgrade threat sends Wall Street into third-day retreat

Fri 22 May

The prospect of a downgrade in the UK government's credit rating and mixed signals on the state of the US economy sent stocks on Wall Street for a third day.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 129.91 points, or 1.5%, to close at 8292.13, and the S&P 500-stock index slid 15.14, or 1.7%, to 888.33.

Both benchmarks were weighed down by losses in their most economically sensitive components. Alcoa, Schlumberger and Deere all slid at least 4.9% on concern a lingering recession will reduce demand for materials, energy and machinery.
