News Summary: US stocks fall, halting long rally

By The Associated Press

DOW DOWN? The Dow Jones industrial average fell 25.03 points Friday, ending a 10-day stretch of increases that was its longest in nearly 17 years. To find a longer winning streak, you have to go back even further - to Jan. 3, 1992, when the Dow ended 11 straight days of gains.

HOW NOW, DOW? In the 10 days ended Thursday, the Dow gained 484.65 points, or 3.4 percent. The index is still up 3.3 percent this month and 10.8 percent for the year.

NEXT SHOW: The Standard & Poor's 500 index has risen to multiyear highs, but remains five points shy of its all-time closing high of 1,565, reached in October 2007.
