US stock indices collapsed for the second time in a week.
American stock indexes fell again. Following the results of February 8, the Dow Jones index fell by 1033 points (minus 4.1 percent), to 23,860 points. This is evidenced by the data of the New York Stock Exchange.
The S&P index fell by 100.6 points (minus 3.75 percent) and decreased to 2581 points. Nasdaq dropped by 274.8 points (minus 3.9 percent), to 6777 points.
The market has matured correction after a period of continued growth in 2017, experts say. "The next bear market will be the heaviest in our lives," said investor Jim Rogers in an interview with Bloomberg. But the US shares have not yet reached the turning point, after which the "bearish" trend will be inevitable, he believes.
The current drop is the second in a week: on February 5, Dow Jones collapsed by 1175 points (4.6 percent). This is a record day's decline for the entire history of the index. The S&P 500 also lost 4 percent, or 113 points. The collapse occurred against the background of the White House's statements about the successes of the American economy.
After the record fall of American markets, the world's richest 500 people lost $ 114 billion. The founder and head of the Berkshire Hathaway investment company Warren Buffett, the third-largest player in the world, suffered most.
