Every component of the S&P is declining mid-day, as the Dow loses 200 points and is on pace for another losing day.

At noon EDT, the S&P 500 was off 38 points, or 0.9%, at 4,434 as the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.6% to 34,531, and the Nasdaq Composite traded 1.2% lower, posing the potential the three US benchmark indices could erase early weekly gains.

The S&P was weighted down by steep drops in information technology and materials, while the tech sector dipped 1.5% lower and materials down nearly 2%.

Health care was the S&P’s best offer among the 11 components but is also fighting to stay in the green.

On the week, the Dow is up 0.35% and the S&P 500 is up 0.24%, the Nasdaq Composite is 0.3% better this week, but for the month, all three indices are in the red.

The Dow is trading 1.7% lower in September, the S&P 500 is down 1.1%, and the Nasdaq has lost 0.6% this month.
