Stocks ended sharply lower Thursday, with the Nasdaq Composite COMP, -4.99% dropping 5% as major indexes more than wiped out gains seen the previous session in a relief rally that followed a widely anticipated Federal Reserve rate hike. Tech and other growth stocks were hardest hit as Treasury yields jumped, with the 10-year rate at its highest since late 2018 at more than 3.04%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -3.12% shed around 1,063 points, or 3.1%, to close near 32,998, according to preliminary figures, while the S&P 500 SPX, -3.56% lost 3.6% to finish near 4,147.
