FACTBOX-U.S. stock market performance in 2018

Dec 31 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks limped to the finish line in 2018, as the worst December for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 since 1931 helped push the major indexes to their worst yearly performance in a decade.

A strong start to the year in January was erased by declines in February and March, as market worries that would last throughout the year - a trade war between the United States and China, a more hawkish Federal Reserve, slowing global growth and the possibility that earnings have peaked - became more pronounced.

Below is a list of major indexes, sectors, and the S&P’s best and worst performers for the year:
