NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The markets ended October on a sour note.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average slid 276.10, or 2.26%, to 11,955.01. The S&P 500 fell 31.79, or 2.47%, to 1253.30. The Nasdaq fell 52.74, or 1.93%, to 2684.41.
Melissa Lee, the moderator of CNBC's "Fast Money" TV show, said the S&P enjoyed its best monthly percentage gain in October, despite today's reversal.
Looking ahead, Joe Terranova said the "ultimate question" for investors is how long are they going to be in this market after a day like this. He said the market needs to hold at 1229.For a breakout of some stocks from a recent "Fast Money" TV show, check out Dan Fitzpatrick's "3 Stocks I Saw on TV."
