US stocks are ending broadly lower, led by declines in banks as interest rates move lower. Goldman Sachs sank 3% and JPMorgan Chase lost 2.5%, two of the biggest losses in the Dow Jones industrial average. The Dow average gave up 174 points, or 1%, to 17,541. The Standard & Poor's 500 index lost 24 points, or 1.2%, to 2,041. The Nasdaq composite fell 72 points, or 1.5%, to 4,848. It was the biggest decline in the S&P 500 index in six weeks.
