How the major stock indexes fared on Friday

Stocks fell to their lowest level in four months Friday after the government said hiring remains weak and another European country warned its economy was in trouble. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 323 points to close below 10,000. It was the lowest finish since February and the third-worst slide of the year. Major indexes all lost more than 3 percent. The drop pushed the market back into "correction" mode, meaning a decline of at least 10 percent from a recent high.
