How the Dow Jones industrial average did Thursday

Investors retreated from stocks Thursday, leading the Dow Jones industrial average to its worst day in five weeks, after disappointing earnings from Wal-Mart and mixed news about the global economy.

Financial markets reflected broader investor jitters: government bonds rose, small-company stocks continued to plunge, and safe, slower-growth industries fared the best.

On Thursday:

The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 167.16 points, or 1 percent, to 16,446.81.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 index lost 17.68 points, or 0.9 percent, to 1,870.85.

The Nasdaq composite fell 31.33 points, or 0.8 percent, to 4,069.29.

For the week:

The Dow Jones industrial average is down 136.53 points, or 0.8 percent.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 index is down 7.63 points, or 0.4 percent.

The Nasdaq composite lost 2.58 points, or 0.1 percent.

For the year:

The Dow is down 129.85 points, or 0.8 percent.

The S&P 500 index is up 22.49 points, or 1.2 percent.

The Nasdaq is down 107.30 points, or 2.6 percent.
