Stocks Suffer Worst Year Since 2008 Banking Crisis

The New York Post reports:

The stock market ended a miserable year on a positive note but still closed out 2018 with its worst showing in a decade.

After setting a series of records through the late summer and early fall, major US indexes fell sharply after early October, leaving them all in the red for the year on Monday.

The S&P 500 ended the year down 6.2 percent, the Dow Jones Industrial Average 5.6 percent. It was the worst year for US stocks since the 2008 financial crisis.
