The Dow, S&P 500, and Nasdaq continue to be without a 1 percent move all year.

The last time each index moved 1 percent — in either direction — was on Dec. 7.

This streak will reach 53 sessions for all three indices if markets don't see a 1 percent move on Friday. That is notable, considering the Dow will surpass its 52-session record that ran from May to July 2014.

The Dow is now on track for its longest streak without a 1 percent move since a 60-session record 10 years ago, which spanned from November 2006 to February 2007.

The S&P 500 continues to have its longest streak without a 1 percent move since a 62-session streak from April to July 2014, and the Nasdaq since a 73-session streak from June to October 1989.
