American Markets Decline

It is interesting to note that the Nasdaq had a fairly volatile day, with crests and troughs. Interestingly, the aforementioned Nvidia also had a bad day. The stock value of the most valuable company dropped by a significant 3.22 per cent or 4.21 points, to USD 126.57 per share.

Coming back to the major indices, Russell 2000 and Dow Jones Industrial Average were the exceptions. Russell ended with a rise of 0.23 per cent or 4.64 points, closing at 2,022.03. Dow Jones closed with a marginal rise of 0.040 per cent or 15.57 points, ending the day at 39,150.33.

This larger drop comes after a day of decline earlier in the Asian markets as well. Japan's marquee Nikkei ended in red, however, with a marginal decline of 0.095 per cent or 36.55 points, closing at 38,596.47.

BSE Sensex dropped by 0.35 per cent or 269.03 points, closing at 77,209.90. NSE Nifty declined by 0.28 per cent or 65.90 points to close at 23,501.10.
