Worries over China began last week when the government unexpectedly devalued the yuan, the Chinese currency, which investors interpreted as a sign growth could be worse than the government has suggested. The ripple effect from the move has sent stock markets across the world tumbling. The stock market could still be in a free fall Monday after suffering its largest drop in nearly four years yesterday, as the Dow plunged 530 points amid slowing growth in China, plummeting oil prices and persistent fears of higher interest rates, experts said. The sell-off was in full swing when the markets closed and could continue when they open Monday, according to Christine Armstrong, executive director at Morgan Stanley.
