Stocks rallied by roughly 1% Friday – not enough to put the week in the black

Down days had a 3-to-2 edge on up days this past week, and the Dow Jones Industrials ended the week 167 points or 1.0% lower as a result. Other U.S. stock indexes generally had deeper declines and shallower rebounds during the week, and consequently had bigger losses for the full week: S&P 500, -1.4%; NASDAQ, -1.5%; S&P 600 SmallCaps, -2.2%; and S&P 400 MidCaps, -2.3%.

Uptrend in stocks resumes with Dow climbing some 150 points

Stocks fall back from highs on Monday

U.S. stocks fell victim to the most pronounced profit taking in nearly 7 weeks on Monday, with the S&P 500 declining 0.8% and smaller-cap indexes even more than that. The Dow lost a little more than 100 points (0.6%) off Friday’s record 17280 close. NASDAQ, a laggard last week, was so again on Monday, declining 1.1%. A combination of profit taking, a slight disappointment in existing home sales, and uncertainty relating to China’s economy and economic policies appeared to be behind Monday’s sell-off.
