Canada's benchmark S&P/TSX fell 168.77 points, or 2.58%, to 6,366.67.

European markets closed lower. In London, the Financial Times-Stock Exchange 100 index was down 202.80 points, or 4.95%, to 3,895.50.

France's CAC 40 shed 174.35 points, or 5.25%, to 3,149.69.

Germany's DAX index slid 200.45 points, or 5.15%, to 3,691.43 on worries about economy and pending elections. German May construction orders fell 9% and are down 13.8% over the past year. On the plus side, May factory orders rose a revised 3.3% vs. 3.1% originally reported.

Asian markets ended lower. In Japan, the Nikkei 225 index fell 13.35 points or 0.13%, to 10,189.01 as worsening sentiment resulting from sharp slides in U.S. markets last Friday was offset by an unexpected wave of buying from domestic pension funds.
