NEW YORK - Wall Street stocks finished sharply lower, with large tech shares suffering another drubbing in a broadening sell-off that also hit energy and financial companies.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 2.3 percent, or around 630 points, to close at 27,500.89.

The broad-based S&P 500 shed 2.8 percent to 3,331.84, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index slumped 4.1 percent to 10,847.69. The Nasdaq has declined 10 percent in the last three sessions after hitting the last in a series of records on September 2.
