Stocks Slide After the FBI Says It’s Investigating Clinton’s Emails Again

Washington Post: “Investors rushed to sell their assets in equity and currency markets Friday afternoon after the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it was looking into Hillary Clinton’s emails again. The revelation seemed to cause fluctuations in prices for a range of securities and commodities in the United States and overseas.”

“Shares in the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index declined about 1 percent immediately after 1 p.m., when a letter from FBI Director James B. Comey to lawmakers detailing the continuing investigation became public. Comey had previously said that the FBI had completed its investigation.”

“Prices in the Nasdaq Composite index gave up 0.9 percent, while the Dow Jones industrial average declined 0.8 percent.”
