Market Extra: The Dow has worst month by this metric in 11 years

The Dow Jones Industrial Average, which was the only one of the Big 3 stock-market trackers to have a losing May, suffered its worst month in terms of daily gains in 11 years.

The Dow DJIA lost 1,189.89 points, or 3.49%, in May. That’s not particularly a bad month, as it was the smallest decline during months the Dow lost ground since it slipped 3.32% in January 2022. In between, the Dow declined in seven of 15 months, with an average loss of 5.20%.
