The S&P Retail Index, which was within a point of 500 on April 26, closed at 469.20, down 14.15 points, or 2.9 percent, second only to the 3.2 percent sell-off on April 27. The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 2 percent, a 225.06-point drop that pushed it under 11,000 to 10,926.77, the index’s most severe battering since Feb. 4. The S&P 500 surrendered the 1,200 mark, dropping 2.4 percent to 1,173.60.
