Stock Market Today: Dow Drops 943 Points as Investors Storm the Exits
So much for the market's best day of the year. Oct. 28, on average the S&P 500's best-performing day over the past 70 years, was instead one of 2020's worst as COVID-19 concerns continued to flare up in the U.S. and Europe.

Cities such as Chicago and Newark are renewing restrictions on businesses and public gatherings amid not just record-high new caseloads in America, but rising hospitalizations and deaths as well. In Germany, restaurants and theaters will be shut down for four weeks, and other European countries are stepping up their own measures to fend off a second wave.

The S&P 500 did not come close to meeting its average 0.54% gain on Oct. 28, instead plunging 3.5% to 3,271.
