How major US stock indexes fared Friday

April 6, 2018

Stocks ended the week the way they began it: tumbling as investors worry that tariffs and harsh words between the U.S. and China will touch off a trade war that derails the global economy. That came with the U.S. considering duties on an additional $100 billion in goods imported from China.

The S&P 500 index gave up 58.37 points, or 2.2 percent, to 2,604.47.

The Nasdaq composite tumbled 161.44 points, or 2.3 percent, to 6,915.11.

The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks slipped 29.63 points, or 1.9 percent, to 1,513.30.
