Stock Market Today: February 7, 2018

02/07/2018 The Dow Jones Industrial Average slipped into negative territory today at the close, after being as much as 381 points higher at one point, in another volatile day of trading.

Leading the way higher were the NASDAQ and the NASDAQ 100, with gains of roughly 30% each.
