Amazing: the DJIA hit 11,200 on 26 April, and here we are a couple weeks later down for the year! Things are changing very fast.

even more amazing... the dow is DOWN about 1.87% over 10 years. so much for buy-and-hold investing.  add a comment

When you consider how different these indexes are, it is pretty surprising how much they are moving in tandem. There was some divergence during the year between them, but now they are all basically back where they started.
