Dow May Have Longest Losing Streak Since 1978

(New York)

Well, the Dow might be about to suffer its longest losing streak in 40 years. The index has lost eight days in a row, and many of them were punishing. Now, if the Dow loses again today, making it nine days in row, it will be the longest streak since 1978. Since 1896, the Dow has only suffered ten losing streaks of nine days or more.

FINSUM : This seems like one of those stats that appears fairly meaningless when it is happening, but in hindsight might seem the start of a bear market/correction or recession.
