February not likely to rescue stocks, history shows

usatoday.com — Stocks dive-bombed in January. And history says don't expect stocks to skyrocket in February. That's the message after a review of seasonal performance statistics for the Dow Jones industrial average in the second month of the year -- and a review of how the broader Standard & Poor's 500 stock index has fared in February, as well as the remainder of the year, following years in which stocks finished January down more than 5%, as they did to kick off 2016.

Stocks look to start February where they ended in January: down

usatoday.com — The U.S. stock market is pointing to a lower open to kick off February after suffering its worst January performance since 2009. Driving stock prices down to start the new month were some of the same headwinds that have haunted stocks all year: falling oil prices and a fresh report which shows slowing growth in China persists.

usatoday.com — Notwithstanding the Dow's nearly 400-point rally Friday, Wall Street is more than happy to bid good riddance to a dismal January and spin the dice on things getting better in February and beyond. The first month of the new year was far from a happy one for investors.

All 3 major U.S. indexes end January lower

courier-journal.com — The Dow rose nearly 400 points Friday to cap a turbulent month on an upbeat note after a surprise interest rate cut by the Bank of Japan and despite a report showing weak fourth-quarter U.S. growth. It has been a dreary month for stocks.

On last day of dismal Jan., stocks rally on surprise Japan rate cut, Federal Reserve

usatoday.com — The Dow, on track for its worst January performance since 2009, looks to cap off the turbulent month with gains after a surprise interest rate cut overnight by the Bank of Japan.
