Stock market jitters compounded by report that Trump will withdraw from NAFTA

"...stocks, struggling to maintain record-setting altitude in 2018, took a firmer slide Wednesday afternoon amid a report that Canadian officials expect that President Donald Trump will announce an end to the North American Free Trade Agreement."

Quick analysis from MarketWatch:

The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.07% was off about 50 points, or 0.2%, at 25,3337, the S&P 500 index SPX, -0.11% was off 0.3% at 2,744, while the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, -0.14% retreated by 0.3% at 7,139. The main benchmarks had been treading water, trying to recover from an earlier, steeper, slide, before reports about Nafta surfaced. According to Reuters, which cited two Canadian government officials, Canada is increasingly convinced that President Donald Trump will announce that the U.S. will exit Nafta.
