NEW YORK (WKOW) --- The Dow Jones tumbled more than 300 points, Thursday, just one day after Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke raised fears the central bank will begin ending its stimulus policies.

The Dow is expected to suffer it's biggest one-day decline since November.

In two days, the Dow has lost more than 500 points.
