Stocks slid lower to start the first session of the year’s second half after closing out the worst first half in fifty years. For the first six months of 2022, the Dow shed more than 15%, and the S&P 500 lost 20.6%. Tech stocks have had an especially tough year as recession fears rose along with sky-high inflation.
