Dow Jones Industrial Average
Stock market milestones are largely manufactured hype.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average is designed to keep climbing higher, ignoring inflation and removing underperforming firms.
Global stocks plunged on Monday, with the Dow making its worst start to a year since 2008.
The Dow Jones industrial average rose 1.47 percent to 16,284.7.
The Nasdaq composite and S&P 500 both dropped more than 2 percent.
In August, the S&P lost 6.3 percent, the Dow fell 6.6 percent and the Nasdaq declined 6.9 percent.
The Dow Jones industrial average fell 204.91 points to 15,666.44.
The move had been anticipated since Apple's seven-for-one stock split in June 2014.
