By day's end, the Dow was about 70 points lower -- after falling as much as 180 points in the first half-hour of trading. The sell-off came on news out of Europe about accounting irregularities at a company connected to a major bank in Portugal. The S&P 500 ended the day down eight points, and the Nasdaq composite lost 23 points.
