Friday's decline of 3.24% for the Dow was the first -3% day since February 27th, 2007, and just the third of the bull market (if it still is one) that started in October of 2002. 

Below we highlight all -3% days for the Dow Jones Industrial Average post WWII.  The average change on the day following the 60 prior occurrences has been 0.11%, while the average change over the next week has been 0.28%.  Going back 10 years, the average performance on the next day has been 0.63%.
