Here Come The Millennials, And Potentially A Virus

  • U.S. equity markets sold-off this week by the most since early August as softer-than-expected economic data and mounting fears over the spread of the coronavirus erased 2020's earlier gains.

  • The S&P 500 finished lower by 2.1% while the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped more than 700 points on the week as investors piled into safe-haven assets.
