| About: SPDR Dow (DIA)

We received a number of requests Friday afternoon for the largest one-day point declines in the Dow. Below we highlight all one-day point declines of at least 300 points for the DJIA.

As shown, Friday's decline of 366 points ranks 13th on the list. While the percentage changes are much different on these days because of the actual price levels of the index on the day of the declines, the average change on the day after these large point declines is 0.92%, with gains two-thirds of the time.
