U.S. markets losses continued Friday due to disappointing economic readings and as investors awaited the upcoming central bank's policy-committee meeting. The Standard & Poor's 500 index and the Dow Jones Industrial Average posted losses of 1.01 percent and 1.17 percent last week. On Friday, the International Monetary Fund kept its 2013 growth outlook at 1.9 percent, but lowered its 2014 growth outlook 0.3 percent to 2.7 percent. The markets recent slide is largely due to concerns that the Federal Reserve may curb its $85 billion-a-month bond-buying program. Here is how some of the top movers reacted Friday:
American Superconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: AMSC) shares declined 11.32 percent to close at $2.35 a share. The stock traded in between $2.35 and $2.58 on volume of 1.68 million shares traded.
