Stock Market Today: December 11, 2017
William G. Ferguson | 12/11/2017
The major U.S. equity indexes, fresh off an interesting five-day stretch for stocks last week, started the day off in sluggish fashion. Trading at the onset was slightly weak after news surfaced of a terrorist attack at the Port Authority in New York City, a major transportation hub. However, the market quickly regrouped and the bulls extended Friday’s gains within the first 30 minutes, only to then see the bears jump back into the market about 90 minutes into the session in what is shaping up to be a mixed day of trading on Wall Street.
