Stocks slide as Europe slashes its growth forecast



Published: Wed, November 7, 2012 @ 10:30 a.m.

Associated Press

Stocks opened sharply lower on Wall Street today after the presidential election and dire warnings from Europe that a broad recession there is now all but certain.

Index futures had been higher early today but reversed course after the European Union slashed its growth forecast for next year, sending European stock markets sharply lower.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 196 points to 13,046 points shortly after the opening bell.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index lost 17 points to 1,411 and the Nasdaq composite was off 37 points at 2,974.

European markets gave up early gains and turned sharply lower. Investors are also worried about what Washington will do about looming tax increases and government-spending cuts.
