Despite modest gains today, all three major benchmarks finished October with their third-straight monthly loss. For the Dow and S&P 500, this is the worst monthly losing streak since January to March of 2020, the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. And while the Cboe Volatility Index (VIX) closed at two-week lows today, Wall Street's "fear gauge" logged back-to-back monthly gains for the first time since August to September 2022.
