Stocks open mixed on Wall Street

This is why the Dow is plunging

As of the close of the market on Thursday afternoon, the two most watched stock indexes, the Dow and the Standard & Poor's 500, have dropped 10 percent from their all-time highs, set January 26.

After Monday, which saw the biggest one-day drop in six years - now blamed on a combination of interest-rate fears, computer-driven trading and the effect of volatility funds - the results restored a measure of confidence.

The Dow closed 1,033 points lower on Thursday, the second day of the week it has experienced a four-digit loss.

"I think what we have moved into now is actually more investors taking more defensive approach to the market just purely as a reaction to the sharp price drop that we have had", added Lawler.

Analysts have said for months that financial markets were due a correction, after a long period of rising prices.

United States stocks plummeted almost 4% on Thursday in another dramatic session as investors continued to fret about the possibility of rising inflation and higher interest rates.

In Europe, Germany's DAX fell 1.2 percent, while France's CAC 40 lost 1.2 percent. The indexes reached their latest record highs just two weeks ago.

Australia's S&P/ASX 200 was up 1.0 percent at 5,889.60. Amazon rose 2.2 percent.
