Hi, Everyone!

The Dow Jones industrial average added 552 points, according to early tallies, after falling to within 81 points of its 5½ year low earlier in the session. Between the close and the low, the Dow's swing was 870 points; There was a 911-point difference between the day's high and the day's low.



“Between the close and the low”, here what does “the close” mean?

“The low” should mean “the lowest point”, then “the close” means what?
Yes, exactly. The Dow's average when the market closed.
The 'close' is the close of trading for that day, I should think.
