U.S. stocks slump ahead of Fed meeting

  NEW YORK, Dec. 11 (Xinhua) -- U.S. stocks plummeted Friday as investors were cautious ahead of a U.S. Federal Reserve policy meeting, which is expected to raise interest rate for the first time in nearly a decade.

  The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 309.54 points, or 1.76 percent, to 17,265.21. The S&P 500 moved down 39.86 points, or 1.94 percent, to 2,012.37. The Nasdaq Composite Index decreased 111.71 points, or 2.21 percent, to 4,933.47.

  Oil prices dived to near sever-year low after the decision of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) last Friday to keep crude production pumping at current level in an already oversupplied market.

  The declining crude prices knocked down shares of major oil companies.

  "We've seen equity markets correlate fairly closely to the price of crude of late. OPEC apparently swung and missed at their chance to support the price of a barrel when they took a powder last week at the cartel's big shindig," said Stephen Guilfoyle, managing director at Deep Value, Thursday.

  On the economic front, in the week ending Dec. 5, the advance figure for seasonally adjust initial claims was 282,000, an increase of 13,000 from the previous week's unrevised level of 269,000, according to the U.S. Labor Department Thursday.

  The four-week moving average was 270,750, an increase of 1,500 from the previous week's unrevised average of 269,250.
