This past week was rocky for the Dow Jones industrials, with the index losing about 2.6%. Although, compared to the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq, the Dow did the best out of the group. It seems that the markets are in correction territory with all the 2018 gains erased. The Dow might be able to stave off these market headwinds if its components reporting this week offer some favorable numbers.
Six of the index’s 30 components are expected to share their results this week. The index is down about 6% in the past 30 days, although it is roughly flat 2018.
