Stock Market Today: October 21, 2019

10/21/2019 The stock market started in the green today, as trader sentiment improved over the weekend, which caused the composites to move higher in the first few moments of trading. However, some negative news concerning Boeing’s (BA) 737 Max plane came out over the weekend and dragged both that stock and the Dow Jones Industrial Average lower. It led the Dow to fall into the red for a brief spell. Still, the rest of the market held up quite well and started to march higher through the early morning and continued through the afternoon. The composites closed not far off from the day’s highs. Overall, the Dow closed higher by 57 points, while the S&P 500 was up around 21 points.

Stock Market Today: October 14, 2019

10/14/2019 The stock market started in the red today, as doubts crept in about the Phase I trade deal between the U.S. and China. A news report stated that China wants another round of talks before signing to iron out a few key details. The market had risen considerably last Friday due to the traders' belief that a deal had been finalized, so this uncertainty hurt sentiment. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down by as many as 67 points, while the other indices were down in tandem. However, sentiment improved after the initial move down, and the composites moved slightly into the green. The Dow was up by as many as 58 points, and the market moved higher in general. The rest of the day could be characterized by choppiness ahead of tomorrow’s earnings reports. Overall, the Dow closed down 29 points, and the S&P 500 was lower by four points.

10/10/2019 The futures market was quite volatile as rumors flew about the U.S. trade negotiations with China. But by the time the stock market opened, prices were well into the green. The move higher was aided by a report stating that President Trump was going to meet with the Chinese Vice Premier Liu for high-level negotiations tomorrow. However, sentiment reached an overbought condition, and the markets tapered off throughout much of the second half of the trading session. Even so, the composites retained most of the day’s gains and staged a small move up in the last portion of the day. Overall, the Dow closed higher by 151 points, the S&P 500 was up 19 points, and the NASDAQ gained 47 points.
