Wall St slides amid shutdown

US stocks extend losses as investors grow uneasy about nearing US govt debt ceiling deadline.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average extended earlier losses, falling 103 points, or 0.7%, to 14,833 points. On Monday, the Dow fell 136 points, or 0.9%, to close at a one-month low. On Tuesday it was down for the eleventh time in 14 sessions.
