Wall Street lost ground on Friday, marking its second straight weekly loss

Wall Street posted further losses on Friday as concerns grew that the Federal Reserve and other central banks are poised to trigger a recession if that’s what it takes to tame inflation.

The S&P 500 fell 1.1%, marking its third straight decline. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.8% and the Nasdaq Composite lost 1%. Major indexes posted their second straight weekly loss.

The retreat was wide. More than 80% of stocks in the benchmark S&P 500 index fell. Technology and healthcare stocks were among the market’s top weights. Microsoft fell 1.7% and Pfizer fell 4.1%.

The Fed this week raised its forecast for how much it will eventually take interest rates and tried to dash some investors’ hopes that a rate cut could come next year. In Europe, the central bank turned out to be even more aggressive in the eyes of many investors. (AP)
