US Stock market wraps lower; Dow on a fifth-day losing streak
Last session of the week was very volatile but despite that, all benchmark equities ended in the red. The market was driven by the latest announcement from the Federal Reserve that discussed the monetary policy decision as well as their projections.
The Dow was not able to change the trend this week as another drop was observed this Friday, marking a fifth day of decline. NASDAQ ended giving back some of the gains made on prior days ending lower by almost 1%.
