The benchmark S&P/ ASX200 index fell 76.6 points, or 1.59 per cent, at 4750.6, while the All Ordinaries in dex dropped 77.7 points, or 1.6 per cent, to 4771.9 points. Patersons Securities associate director John Curtin said uncertainty was gripping the market after US President Barack Obama unveiled proposals to limit the size, risk taking and proprietary trading of large Wall Street banks. Financial shares pulled the Dow Jones Industrial Average 2 per cent lower on Thursday, with banking giant Goldman Sachs plunging 4.1 per cent despite the bank beating December quarter earnings estimates. Burrell Stockbroking director Richard Herring said the weak US lead was also caused by potential moves by China to slow its economy after December quarter gross domestic product hit 10.7 per cent. Uncertainty over the impli cations of the US Presidents proposals for credit markets hit the local banking sector as well as big cyclical stocks. ANZ Banking Group led the big four banks lower, falling 61c to $22.65, while National Australia Bank lost 47c to $26.72. Commonwealth Bank lost 81c to $55.75 and Westpac was down 23c to $25.38. Bigger moves were seen among diversified financials, with local investment banking giant Macquarie Group falling 37c, or 3.21 per cent. Resources and energy stocks also suffered falls. Total trade was 2.78 billion shares, worth $5.95 billion, with 294 stocks trading up, 825 down and 342 steady.
