Market 360: The Week's Best & Worst

On a week dominated by bailouts, stimulus and talks of bank nationalization, the Dow crashes through October 2002 lows and approached October 1997 lows in early trading Friday. The White House statement Friday afternoon favoring a privately held banking system calmed bank nationalization fears and helped the Dow cut its almost 220 point loss, contributing to the major indexes closing off their lows, but still down about 6% or greater for the week.
