WALL STREET stocks were little changed in afternoon trading after a rollercoaster morning following the Dow's 299-point slide on Tuesday.

"I would like to see the Dow sell off more, to between 8,350 and 8,300 points, as that would be a much better test," said Harry Laubscher, market analyst at Tucker Anthony. The Dow fell 15.45 to 8,471.86 by early afternoon. "The lows are being tested, but right now we are just sitting pat," Mr Laubscher said.
