Gold Silver Reports – U.S. stocks closed out the final trading day of 2015 with both the Dow and S&P 500 suffering their first year of negative returns since 2008 when the financial crisis was in full swing. Both benchmarks were on the verge of a positive year at the start of today’s trading session, with the Dow needing a sizable, 219-point gain to hit break even. However, it wasn’t meant to be today, as all three major indexes fell about 1% or more and closed at their lows. The Nasdaq reigned supreme for 2015, posting final annual gains of 5.7%, while the S&P 500 and Dow ended the year down about 1%. Oil was by far the biggest loser this year, with the price of U.S. Crude dropping a whopping 30.5%. – Neal Bhai Reports
