Dow plunge erases October gain, on track for close below 50-day moving average

The stock market's Monday drop erased an October gain for the Dow Jones Industrial Average , putting the blue-chip gauge on track to close below its 50-day moving average for the first time in nearly four weeks. The Dow was down around 820 points, or 2.9%, near 27,515 on Monday, as stocks extended losses at midday. The decline, attributed in part to a surge in COVID-19 cases in the U.S. and Europe, left the Dow down 0.9% for the month to date, contributing to a 3.6% year-to-date decline. It also saw the DJIA fall below its 50-day moving average, a closely watched indicator of the near-term trend, at 28,014.53, according to FactSet. A close below that level would be the index's first finish below the average since Sept. 29, according to Dow Jones Market Data. The S&P 500 was down 2.3% near 3,385, trimming its October gain to 0.6%. The S&P 500 remains up 4.8% for the year to date.

U.K. debt rating lowered by Moody's on slower growth, Brexit

Moody's Investors Service on Friday downgraded the U.K.'s debt to Aa3 from Aa2, saying economic growth "has been meaningfully weaker than expected and is likely to remain so in the future." Moody's had last downgraded the U.K.'s bonds in September 2017. The decision to leave the EU has exacerbated that, the ratings agency said. "Growth will also be damaged by the scarring that is likely to be the legacy of the coronavirus pandemic, which has severely impacted the U.K. economy," Moody's said. In addition, the country's "fiscal strength has eroded," with debt rising from already high levels, and U.K.'s institutions and governance are weaker, Moody's said. "Policymaking, particularly with respect to fiscal policy, has become less predictable and effective. Looking forward, the self-reinforcing combination of low potential growth and high debt in a fractious policy environment will create additional headwinds," the debt ratings said.
