More

  • For the week ending Friday, July 25, 2008, the markets closed mixed for the week, on negative housing data, and mixed earnings results.  An early rally in financial and airlines stocks, supported by the continued slide in oil prices, was quickly wiped away by ongoing uncertainty in the economy. The Dow dropped more than 280 points on Thursday, marking the worst one day point drop in over a month. However, Friday saw a slight rebound on strong durable goods and a bounce back in consumer sentiment.  Only the Nasdaq finished slightly up 1.2% for the week.  The Dow and S&P finished down 1.09% and 0.23%, respectively.
