Video transcript

SEANA SMITH: Let's get you up to speed on the market action because it has been quite a day, you could say, a month and a quarter here for the major averages. For the day, the Dow off just around 1.2%. The biggest driver in the Dow today, the worst performer is Nike. Nike on pace for its worst day since 2001. Taking a look at the NASDAQ, the NASDAQ off just around 7/10 of a percent today. The S&P off nearly 1%.

Month to date, let's take a look at these charts here, as we pull up a month to date for, let's start with the S&P. So S&P, month to date, off just around over 8 and 1/2%, the worst September that we have seen now for stocks since 2008. S&P off more than 7% this month. That will be the third time that this has happened with the S&P so far this year, marking the first time-- the last time that has happened was actually during the financial crisis.

Taking a look at the Dow month today, off just over 8% as well. Worst month that we have seen for the Dow since March 2020. And taking a look at the NASDAQ here, month to date, off just over 9%, the biggest monthly loss that we have seen since April.

Taking a look at a quarter to date for the NASDAQ, off pretty substantially, off just over 3% for the losses for the quarter. Not nearly as bad as what we saw in September for stocks. The Dow for the quarter off just over 6%, and the S&P substantially in the red here, off just over 4 and 1/2%. Rachelle.
