Economic Week in Review: Summer doldrums continue
————————————————-

It was a light week for economic reports, giving analysts a short
mid-summer breather. On Wall Street, the stock market’s swoon
deepened, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average briefly dipping below
11,000 for the first time in two years. The S&P 500 Index fell 1.85%
to 1,239 (for a year-to-date total return of –14.6%). The yield of
the 10-year U.S. Treasury note fell 3 basis points to 3.94% (for a
year-to-date decrease of 10 basis points).
