“For the quarter, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA 12,320, -30.88, -0.25%) gained 6.4%. That’s nearly four times the average gain of just 1.8% for all calendar quarters since the late 1890s, when this benchmark was created — and better than the returns achieved in 70% of those individual quarters.”
