  • For the week and month ending Friday, August 29, 2008,  the major U.S. Indices ended slightly lower for the week but up for the month.  The markets had a volatile week, sinking first on housing price drops and an up-tick in oil prices, then rallying on better-than-expected GDP numbers, and finally falling to end the week on worse-than-expected personal income and spending data.  The Dow hit a 200+ point rally on Thursday, its largest one day gain since 8/8.  The NASDAQ led the indices to the downside this week, down nearly 2%.  For the August close, the Dow, Nasdaq and S&P all finished up 1.5% or more, marking the best monthly gain since April for the Dow & S&P, and best month for the Nasdaq since May.
