The stock market crashed in 2018, wiping out nearly all of the value of some stocks and wiping out some of the largest companies in the U.S. The market is still in recovery mode.
But the Dow Jones Industrial Average has fallen more than 800 points since the end of last year.
So how is the market doing?
Here are some things to watch: 1.
The Dow Jones has fallen on a month-over-month basis this year.
For the first time in more than a decade, the Dow’s daily number of record highs is below a 10-month high.
That’s the best monthly performance for the Dow since August of 2018.
It also marks the lowest daily number for the S&P 500 since the mid-1990s.
Investors are buying more stocks.
On average, the average weekly volume of shares bought by investors in 2018 has dropped about 15% from the previous 12 months.
The average weekly trading volume is now below its record highs in 2017.
The stock markets are now a little more bearish than they were last year, when the Dow was just below a 20-month low.
That might be a good sign.
But investors are now selling less of their stocks.
Investors bought about $5.3 trillion in stocks and other assets during the month, down from $7.9 trillion the previous year, according to FactSet.
Investors sold about $4.3 billion, or 17%, of stocks in 2018.
Investors have also moved back into safe-haven positions.
They have bought more than $3 trillion worth of Treasuries and mortgage-backed securities since the start of the year, down slightly from $3.5 trillion.
The Federal Reserve is trying to boost the economy, which means that the Dow is a little bit higher.
Investors also have been buying more cash.
Cash stocks, which are those that hold cash and invest in stocks, are up almost 30% since the middle of 2018, according in FactSet data.
The U.K. government has said it plans to raise taxes to ease austerity measures imposed by the British government.
Investors and government officials have argued that raising taxes will boost economic growth and boost the value in stocks.
But it’s unclear how the tax hike will affect the stock markets.
The S&P 500 has fallen 5% this year, compared with a 3.5% drop in 2018 and a 1.4% drop during the same period in 2017, according at FactSet, the largest drop in 10 years.
The Nasdaq is up 4%.
The Dow is down 1%.
The S & P 500 is down 4% and the Nasdaq 100 is down 2%.
The index is up 6% since mid-December.
Investors aren’t buying as much cash.
Investors haven’t purchased cash for more than one month in 2018 at a time.
In 2017, investors were buying cash more than twice as much as they did during the entire year, as the chart below shows.
Investors seem to be saving money.
The value of stocks held by individuals has increased by $9.6 trillion since the beginning of 2018 according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
But as of the end to May, cash holdings have fallen 2.9% year-over
