Wall Street tests June lows on recession worries

Wall Street’s main indexes fell on Friday as investors fretted over the prospect of an economic downturn and a hit to corporate earnings from the U.S. Federal Reserve’s aggressive policy tightening moves to quell inflation.

The Dow breached its mid-June lows on an intraday basis to touch 29,643.93 points and hit a near-two year low.

The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq are also closing in on mid-June lows, their weakest points for the year.
