Stocks worst Thanksgiving week since the Great Depression

Didn’t Obama save us from Crisis, Catastrophe, saved the economy and kept us from a Great Depression? Seems the stock market doesn’t think so.

Stocks closed in negative territory in thin, shortened trading Friday as investors were reluctant to go long ahead of the weekend and amid ongoing worries over the euro zone.

The Dow and S&P posted their worst Thanksgiving week since the Great Depression on a percentage basis.

Major U.S. Indexes

The Dow Jones Industrial Average erased their gains to finish lower, led by H-P [HPQ  25.39    -0.39  (-1.51%)   ] and Chevron [CVX  92.29    -1.46  (-1.56%)   ].

The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq also ended lower, logging a seventh consecutive decline. Some traders are watching for 1,150 on the S&P as the next key level.

The CBOE Volatility Index, widely considered the best gauge of fear in the market, ended above 34.

Among key S&P sectors, consumer staples and utilities led the gainers, while energy and techs lagged.
