Dow tumbles 312 points, at risk of closing below 200-day moving average as trade-war fears spook

Mark DeCambre

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was trading sharply lower early Monday and on track to finish below its closely watched long-term moving average, which could herald more pain for the blue-chip gauge. The Dow (DJIA) most recently, was down about 312 points, or 1.2%, at 24,261. If the Dow ends beneath 24,280.25, it's 200-day moving average, it would represent the first slide below that level since early May and the Dow hasn't close below its long--term trend line since the summer of 2016, according to FactSet data.
