(Newser) – Wall Street closed out the market's best week in eight months Friday with a broad slide as technology and health care stocks gave back some of their recent gains. The pullback, which followed a sell-off in markets around the world, snapped a four-day winning streak for the major U.S. stock indexes.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 277.26 points, or 0.9%, to 29,102.51. The Nasdaq slid 51.64 points, or 0.5%, to 9,520.51. In a sign of the market's caution, Treasury yields fell as prices for ultra-safe U.S. government bonds rose. The yield on the 10-year Treasury dropped to 1.58% from 1.64% late Thursday.
