The selloff came amid concerns about inflation and interest rates.
Although the point drop is the second highest on record --behind the 508-point loss of October 1987 -- the decline of three-point-one percent is not near a record.

(( MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE IS A CITY OF SOUTHERN ROYALTY. KNOWN FOR EVERYTHING FROM ITS HOSPITALITY, TO ITS FOOD...TO ITS BLUES.
BUT MOST OF ALL MEMPHIS IS KNOWN FOR ITS KING.
(COURTESY: ELVIS PRESLEY ENT.)


ELVIS PRESLEY IT SEEMS HAD IT ALL FIGURED OUT. ROCK AND ROLL HAD ONE OF ITS FIRST STARS AND AMERICA HAD A HERO, A LEGEND, AN ICON.
SOT/PAUL STOHR/ELVIS FAN

HE IS MORE POPULAR NOW THAN HE EVER WAS. AND HE IS EVERYWHERE. IN THE MIDDLE OF BEALE STREET..ACROSS FROM HIS NEW RESTAURANT HIS RAQUETBALL COURT IS NOW NEWLY COVERED WITH ALL OF HIS INTERNATIONAL HITS..LIKE THEY JUST TOPPED THE CHARTS YESTERDAY. IT SEEMS HE NEVER LEFT. BUT ON A STEAMY HOT DAY IN AUGUST 1977..FANS KNEW THAT HE HAD. SOME RUSHED THE HEARSE AS IT TRIED TO SQUEEZE INTO THE BACK ENTRANCE OF GRACELAND. THOUSANDS POURED IN FROM AROUND THE WORLD...CAUSING A TRAFFIC JAM ON ELVIS PRESLEY BOULEVARD. TWENTY YEARS LATER...LITTLE HAS CHANGED. FROM DAWN TO DUSK..SOME 400 PEOPLE AN HOUR LINE UP TO PASS BY HIS GRAVE. MANY NOT EVEN OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER THE KING ALIVE. LIKE THE PRESIDENT OF HIS TENNESSEE FAN CLUB WHO IS ONLY 16 YEARS OLD.
