Note On NASDAQ’s 8-day Losing Streak

It’s the longest since September 1994.

And from today’s IBD:

“Since 1974, the NASDAQ has seen only six losing streaks longer than the current eight-day skid. The composite flashed two nine-day losing streaks in 1982. It’s seen three 10-day slumps: one in 1974, 1975 and 1984. The worst stretch came in ’84, when the NASDAQ tumbled 16 days in a row.”
