Shares of Amazon.com Inc. /zigman2/quotes/210331248/composite AMZN +3.04% slid 2.9% toward a sixth straight loss in afternoon trading Monday, as part of a broad stock market selloff in which technology sector was the hardest hit. The e-commerce and cloud behemoth's stock is on track to suffer the longest losing streak since the eight-day stretch ended Aug. 5, 2019, according to Dow Jones Market Data. The stock, which is headed for a six-week low, has now tumbled 14.5% since closing at a record $3,731.41 on July 8. The selloff comes as the S&P 500 /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX +0.25% slumped 1.5% and the SPDR Consumer Discretionary Select Sector ETF /zigman2/quotes/200844504/composite XLY +2.27% shed 2.8%.
