Dow falls 500 points in the worst start to December since 1980 (edit)

Last edited Mon Dec 17, 2018, 05:57 PM - Edit history (1)

U.S. stocks closed sharply lower Monday in a volatile session that saw the major benchmarks whipsawing between losses and modest gains in early trading, before investors began selling aggressively Monday afternoon into the close.

The selloff helped drive all three major benchmarks deeper into correction territory, and it marked the worst performance month-to-date in December since 1931 for both the S&P and the Dow.

2. An anti-business Democrat victory will do just that.

3. It took Trump almost 2 years to destroy the Obama momentum.

"Tear it all down!" is what some Trump followers used to say. That's just what's happening.

11. When it is on the rise it is a Trump Market.

When it dives the market belongs to someone else. That is the Trump Way.

12. Sounds like you are confused.

Obama makes the claim that when it was on the rise, it was his, and when it dives, it is someone else's whether it is Bush or Trump.

6. It was 1980 until today. At least that is what the article dated Saturday implies.

5. The Obama bull market could not last forever

7. Excellent news. When it drops over a couple hundred points, smart

people buy. Then when it goes back up, as it always does, free money in the bank.
