NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks slumped again on Wall Street Thursday, erasing another 3.3% from the S&P 500 and bringing the index 23.6% below the peak it reached in January.

The renewed selling came a day after a brief reprieve for markets when the Federal Reserve delivered a huge interest rate increase in its effort to fight back inflation.

The Dow fell 2.4% and the Nasdaq gave back 4.1%. Treasury yields fell.
