The Dow Vs. the S&P 500

As I mentioned before, the Dow held up much better than the S&P 500. The number 777 is already taken a title for today’s activity, but if the Dow had fallen the same percentage as the S&P 500, the loss would have been 981 points. The 181 basis point difference between the two indexes is one of the biggest gaps in history.
