Stock Market Today: December 6, 2017

The S&P 500 was a little more resilient, while the small-cap Russell 2000 traded firmly in the red for most of the day.

Stock Market Today: September 8, 2017

09/08/2017 U.S. equities moved again in a mixed fashion on Friday, as the bulls were ultimately unable to negate Tuesday’s steep selloff. Market breadth favored neither advancing nor declining stocks, as strength in the healthcare, financials, and utility sectors was cancelled out by a bearish undertone in the basic materials, energy, and technology groupings. The indexes exhibited a similar schism, with a modest uptick from the Dow offset by softness in the S&P 500 and a sharp selloff from the NASDAQ.
