White Supremacist violence and the White House's controversial response kept Wall Street on its toes. Here's how it ended the week.
1. Where Markets Stand
Small losses on Friday, Aug. 18, followed a major selloff a day earlier that handed the Dow Jones Industrial Average its worst performance in three months.
The Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq ended Friday with weekly losses. The Dow declined by 0.84% during the week, the S&P 500 dropped by 0.65% and the Nasdaq shed 0.54%
The Dow has spent the majority of the week under its 22,000 level, closing higher than that mark only once in the past five days. The blue-chip index first closed above that level on Aug. 2. The Dow is now more than 300 points from its all-time closing high of 22,118 set on Aug. 7. The S&P 500 is nearly 50 points from its own closing record set on the same day.
