Dow below 10,000 as stocks slide continues

The Dow Jones industrial average opened below 10,000 points today in a fourth straight day of declines.

The drop Friday comes a day after major indexes posted their biggest declines in more than a year. That pushed the market to "correction" mode, or a sharp decline from a recent peak. Investors again looked to Europe for direction.

The German parliament approved the country's share of a $1 trillion plan to help contain debt problems in Europe, but major European stock indexes still fell more than 1 percent.
