Global stocks tumbled to four-month lows, government debt yields sunk to unprecedented levels and crude oil extended declines as anxiety over the spread of the coronavirus surged. The six-day slide pushed the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average indexes down by more than 10 per cent from all-time highs set this month, a so-called correction. The drop of as much as 10 per cent since Friday puts the S&P on pace for its worst week since the 2008 global financial crisis.
