(Bloomberg) -- U.S. equities dropped stocks as a risk-off mood descended on markets amid growing concern that equities have become overvalued. The dollar jumped and Treasury yields fell.The S&P 500 Index headed to its biggest decline since October, with the gauge down about 2% after Federal Reserve officials left their benchmark interest rate unchanged without promising any more aid for the economy. Turmoil continued in pockets of the market where retail traders are becoming a dominant force, with shares of GameStop Corp. and AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. soaring as investment pros questioned whether there’s any rationale behind the moves.The Stoxx Europe 600 Index declined the most in five weeks as the European Union and AstraZeneca Plc disagreed over vaccine delivery delays. The euro fell after a European Central Bank official said the markets are underestimating the odds of a rate cut. Officials in the U.K. announced new rules to try to curb the spread of Covid-19 and Germany cut its 2021 economic growth forecast to 3% from 4.4%.An extended run higher for stocks has reversed this week as investors look to a spate of earnings releases for clues about the health of the corporate world. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said the U.S. economy was a long way from full recovery and still short of policy makers’ inflation and job goals.The stock selloff is being driven partly by speculation that hedge funds will be forced to reduce their equity holdings as retail investors make a concerted effort to boost shares the professional investors have bet against, according to Matt Maley, chief market strategist at Miller Tabak + Co.“A lot of them are getting burned by their shorts, and I think the market is worried that they’ll have to sell some stocks to meet their margin calls,” he said.Elsewhere, Bitcoin fell to about $30,000 and precious metals slumped.
