Nasdaq tumbles 2% Friday, notches worst week since 2020 and falls deeper into correction territory

U.S. stocks tumbled on Friday, closing out a losing week and continuing a rough start to 2022. The Nasdaq Composite was hit the hardest with Friday’s selling sending the tech-heavy index to its worst week since 2020.

The Nasdaq Composite declined 2.7% to 13,768.92 on Friday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 450.02 points to 34,265.37. The S&P 500 slid 1.9% to 4,397.94.

The Nasdaq posted a 7.6% loss for the week, its worst since October 2020, and now sits more than 14% below its November record close. Both the Dow and S&P 500 closed out their third straight week of losses and their worst weeks since 2020. The S&P 500 is off more than 8% from its record close.
