The End (Of The Year) Is Near

Wall StreetThis is officially the last week of the year and Thursday will not only bring the last the day of the year but the last day the market is open for 2015. This year hasn’t been great for stocks but can they redeem themselves even a little this week?

So the closing week in a dramatic year for stocks will decide the whole year’s performance for the major indexes. Down-to-the wire isn’t unprecedented.
