Dow Jones 2019: Laying the Groundwork for Recovery
Last week's three major indexes tested a three-week slippage. This gave a hint of optimism towards 2019, but Dow Jones' industrial average is down 6.7% over the year. The S & P 500 has fallen by 7%. The Nasdaq has fallen by 4.6%. 2018 is the worst year since the sell-out of the Great Recession in 2008. Losses this year were much more brutal: the Dow fell 33.8%, the S & P 500 fell 38.5% and the S & P P 500 fell 40.5% Nasdaq.
This would also be the Nasdaq's first annual slip since 2011, when it lost 1.8%. The S & P 500 fell a fraction this year. The Dow gained 5.5%.
The uptrend? The market declines in both years were followed by strong progress across the market. The Nasdaq recovered in 2012 with a plus of 15.8% over the previous year. The Dow rose 7.2% and the S & P 500 jumped 13.4%.
In 2009, the market bottomed out and recovered from the sharp selloff of the recession. This year's gains were 18.8% against the Dow, 23.5% on the S & P 500 and a massive 43.9% rally on the Nasdaq.
This is no guarantee that the market will rise in 2019. But when he recovers, he'll probably start a follow-up day that confirms a new uptrend. To follow the progress of the market, read the Big Picture.

Some global stock markets; Oil prices rise
The stock exchanges in Shanghai, Tokyo and Frankfurt were closed on Monday at the end of the year. The Hang Seng Index in Hong Kong rose 1.3% on Monday, even though China's output has fallen to its worst level in three years. Hang Seng fell 3.8% in December and 17.3% in 2018.
