U.S. Stocks Are Now Down YTD

Well, that was quick. The Nasdaq 5,000 party ended pretty much the day it began. The Nasdaq today was down better than 80 points, we are now at 4867 and we are leaving 5,000 rapidly in the rearview mirror. The Dow Jones was down 332 points. Remember on last week`s podcast, I mentioned that the Dow Jones Industrials Index and the S&P 500 Index were still up on the year but ever so slightly and I thought it would surrender their gains this week. Well, it happened on Monday. Both the S&P, which was down better than 35 points and the Dow which closed at the low of the day, down 332 points, have wiped out all their gains and are now negative on the year.
