Dow Jones Drops Below 12,000…Longest Weekly Losing Streak Since 2002

More dismal economic news.  But don’t you worry…according to Barry, it’s just a bump in the road

Stocks fell sharply Friday, posting a sixth straight weekly loss — longest losing streak since the fall of 2002.

The 1.4% drop came a day after the market broke its longest losing streak in more than a year.

The market’s last seven-week stretch of losses began in May 2001, as the dot-com bubble deflated.

Stocks have suffered this month after a raft of weak economic news dampened hopes for a speedy recovery. Traders fear that weaker hiring, industrial output, and a moribund housing market are reversing a bull market that lifted the Dow Jones industrial average 20% the past year.

Change!
