In just the past few days, the stock market has been in free fall.
While some markets are still higher than their highs, the overall market is off to a slow start and the market is expected to lose about 5% of its value in the next week.
Here’s what you need to know right now.
Trading in the U.S. stock market is currently in a bear market.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) is up more than 10% since December 19.
And it is up even more this year, according to the latest index tracking data.
That means that the S&P 500 (SPX) and the Nasdaq (NASDAQ) are up by nearly 20%.
The Russell 2000 (RUS) is down 10%.
Trading has been particularly bad for the S.&=% Dow, which has lost about 25% of the value it had gained over the past year.
The market is down about 4% since mid-January.
The index fell by more than 20% in December and then gained by more that 10% in January.
What are the implications?
The stock market, which is still a big part of most people’s financial lives, has been on a long-term uptrend.
It’s been on this trajectory for a long time.
But the market has experienced several major swings in the past.
This is the first time in history that it’s hit the bottom, and now the market’s bottom is starting to come off the ledge.
It could take several more months for the market to return to its previous level.
The biggest downside to the market losing 5% in less than a week is that it will also be the worst month in the Dow Jones industrial average’s history.
That’s because the SAC and S&s stocks have both plunged over the last few days.
If that happens, the Dow could also lose more than 5% by its fourth day of trading.
