The S&P and NASDAQ close lower for the 5th consecutive week

Week ago today, the month of April ended with the NASDAQ index down over 13%. The market rallied on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday getting the month of May off to a good start. However yesterday’s sharp declines, and follow through selling today push the major indices lower on week. In other words the markets snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
A look at the final numbers shows:

Dow industrial average -98.6 points or -0.3% at 32899.38. The index close at 32977 last Friday. The index fell -0.23% this week.

This was the first stretch of five weekly declines in the S&P 500 since May-June 2011 and the first five-week losing streak in the Nasdaq since 2012.
Next week CPI data takes center stage. More Fed speak as well.
