    Stocks recovered a bit on Friday from Thursday's sell-off as the Dow picked up 28-points, which was somewhere between the high and low of the day. The S&P 500 and bonds finished slightly in the red, while small caps and the I-fund picked up modest gains.

    2014 came in like a lion (or maybe a bear) as the Dow lost 135-points. It was the first loss on the first trading day of the year since 2008.
