2. Stocks get spooked: Stock markets around the world are getting the jitters this Halloween as investors worry that Hillary Clinton is losing voter support right ahead of election day.

The FBI revealed Friday it would review newly discovered emails related to its investigation into Clinton’s personal email server. Controversy over Clinton’s emails has consistently dogged her campaign.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average immediately fell 125 points on Friday in reaction to the announcement, before regaining most of those losses.

U.S. stock futures are now steadying, but European markets are all declining in early trading and most Asian markets ended the day with losses.
