Basic materials-related bundled securities were also lower. Among individual stocks, Weyerhaeuser (WY), Dow Chemical (DOW) and Freeport-McMoRan (FCX) slumped 1.8% or more.

The Ultra Basic Materials ProShares (UYM) dropped $3.61, or 4.2%, to $82. The WisdomTree International Basic Materials (DBN) ETF was down $1.12, or 3.1%, to $35.23. The Materials Select Sector SPDR (XLB) was losing 90 cents, or 2.3%, to $38.93.

The Internet Infrastructure HOLDRs (IIH) was also hit hard, as holdings Akamai Technologies (AKAM), NaviSite (NAVI) and VeriSign (VRSN) fell 3% or more. The ETF was losing 11 cents, or 2.1%, to $5.13.
