Wall Street's main indexes fell on Monday as economic growth in China slowed, while a relentless surge in oil prices fueled concerns about elevated inflation.
Data showed China's economy hit its slowest pace of growth in a year in the third quarter, hurt by power shortages and wobbles in the property sector.
