How the major stock indexes fared Monday

Pessimism about Greece's financial problems returned to the financial markets Monday. Stocks fell as investors once again doubted that the country will be able to avoid a default on its debt. The S&P 500 gained 5.4 percent last week as it appeared Greece would get its bailout. But European finance ministers said Friday they would delay authorizing an $11 billion installment of emergency funds for Greece until October.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 108.08, or 0.9 percent, to 11,401.01.

The S&P 500 index fell 11.92, or 1 percent, to 1,204.09.

The Nasdaq composite fell 9.48, or 0.4 percent, to 2,612.

For the year to date:

The Dow is down 176.50 points, or 1.5 percent.

The S&P 500 is down 53.55, or 4.3 percent.

The Nasdaq is down 40.04, or 1.5 percent.
