Thursday saw the biggest points drop for the Dow and S&P 500 in history.

Over the past week, the Dow has plummeted 3,200 points.

Percentage-wise, Thursday wasn’t even in the top 20 worst percentage drops for the Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq.

It was the worst percentage drop for the Dow and the S&P since February 2018, which saw two days where the Dow declined 1,000 points.

All three indices closed down 4%. And they entered correction territory, meaning that they’re off 10% from recent highs.

The S&P 500 is 12% below its peak.

The 10-year Treasury yield fell to a new al-time low below 1.28% on Thursday.
