Investors dumped shares in late trading Thursday on reports that German officials rejected some of the EU summit draft measures intended to help extricate some Eurozone nations from their daunting sovereign debt issues. 

It didn’t help that ECB President Mario Draghi also made some comments that dashed hopes that the central banks would raise its bond purchases of debt-ridden European nations.
