By Scott BarrettPublished September 30, 2018 8:06pmHitting the market for the first time since April, the S&s 500 was down more than 8 percent for the week ending Sept. 30.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost nearly 3 percent, the Nasdaq dropped 2.7 percent and the Russell 2000 dropped 1.7, all in one week.
The S&ams’ performance over the past two years suggests that investors are likely to pay a premium to their money over the next several months.
In the last two months of the year, the Dow Jones index gained more than 9 percent, while the S &Ps have gained more slowly.
For now, the performance of the Sacks and S&am indexes isn’t indicative of the long-term health of the markets.
The Dow Jones’s 10-year average has already surpassed 2,400 points.
For comparison, the Russell 500 has averaged about 2,500 points over the same period.
And the S-Shares index has reached 2,600 points for the year.
The chart below shows the Sack index versus the Sam index over the last decade.
The trend of the Dow and Sacks index has been downward over the years.
The Sacks has fallen to an all-time low in December.
The next S&ack will be in 2020.
