Dow falls more than 600 points amid ongoing market turmoil

The Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged more than 600 points during trading Thursday, the latest major swing in a volatile week for the market. At its low, the Dow dropped roughly 650 points before recovering slightly, The Hill reports.

On Monday, the index recorded its largest ever single-day plunge, dropping more than 1,100 points by the time markets closed, though it recovered more than 560 of those points Tuesday.

Overall, the swings are modest compared to the overall gains the index has made over the last few years, CNBC notes. President Trump on Wednesday scolded the market for its declines, saying it was making a "big mistake" by falling in spite of "so much good (great) news about the economy."
