FRIDAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

This follows a sell-off on Wall Street in the previous trading session, adding to already steep losses for the month of October. On Thursday, the Dow dropped more than 300 points, following a plunge in Chinese equities. The Dow and S&P 500 have fallen more than 4 percent each in October, while the Nasdaq is down nearly 7 percent.

Equities sold off on Thursday amid worries about rising interest rates and fears of a slowing global economy. Overnight, China said its economy grew by 6.5 percent in the third quarter, missing expectations. Chinese equities surged, however, as officials took steps to support the market, and that was helping sentiment in the U.S.
