Only The DJIA Advanced for The Week

Both the S&P 500 and NASDAQ Composite advanced today, but the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) lost some ground. For the week, however, the DJIA was the only major index to advance despite the continued slide of crude oil prices, as investors digested earnings reports and the prospect that the Fed most likely won't lower short-term interest rates any time soon. 1,529,113,350 shares were traded @ The New York Stock Exchange® today.

For the week, the DJIA added 9.45 points (+0.075%), the NASDAQ Composite Index fell by 51.51 points (-2.101%), and the S + P 500 Index lost 0.23 point (-0.016%).
