Making sense of the stock market swings


ST. LOUIS – Huge swings in the stock market force limitations for a second day. The Dow rose more than 800 points shortly after Tuesday’s opening bell. This follows Monday’s historic sell-off, when the Dow saw its biggest drop in history, with a decline of 2,000 points.

The market tumble was set off by both coronavirus fears and a new oil price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia.
