Stocks fell again on Monday as shaky economies and currencies in emerging markets continued to fuel a global downturn.
Fearful investors pushed prices lower across Asia and Europe, though the drops weren't as steep as last week. In the U.S. and in other rich countries, where economies are healthier, investors are also in retreat, but the selling has moderated.
The Dow Jones industrial average fell 41.23 points, or 0.3 percent, to close at 15,837.88.
The Standard & Poor's 500 index fell 8.73 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,781.56.
The Nasdaq composite fell 44.56 points, or 1.1 percent, to 4,083.61.
For the year so far:
The Dow is down 738.78 points, or 4.5 percent.
The S&P 500 is down 66.80 points, or 3.6 percent.
The Nasdaq is down 92.98 points, or 2.2 percent.
