Stocks drop further; Dow industrials slide 600 points

The Dow Jones industrial average plunged a record 1,175 points, or 4.6%, on Monday as a sell-off in the stock market gained momentum less than two weeks after the market set record highs.

Stocks are sinking again Thursday, extending a streak of losses that has yanked the market away from record highs.

The selloff has wiped off all its gains since the start of 2018.
