Treasury Monitoring 'ongoing' Market Developments

The statement was issued on a volatile day for U.S. stocks, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average's intraday rebound running out of steam in afternoon trading. The index had earlier recovered from a 1,000 point drop. The statement said the Treasury "is in regular communication with its regulatory partners and market participants."
