Stock Market Today: December 15, 2017

12/15/2017 Each of the U.S. indexes reached new all-time highs on Friday as optimism for tax reform spurred a bell-to-bell rally. While the bullish run was partly supported by the morning’s positive economic updates (U.S. industrial production edged higher, capacity utilization reached a two-year high), the primary driver today was optimism from The Hill.

12/12/2017 Though overall market breadth was largely mixed on Tuesday, some auspicious developments regarding tax reform helped to drive several pockets of the market higher. Financials, healthcare, and telecommunications stocks were the leaders, with technology and utilities (another one of Monday’s stalwarts) somewhat offsetting that optimism. As the closing bell neared, the S&P 500 and Dow each slipped from their all-time intraday highs set around noon, but still remained well above their breakeven lines. Tomorrow’s decision by the Fed, as well as a new Consumer Price Index reading, will complement tax reform as the main factors likely to influence trading.

Stock Market Today: December 6, 2017

12/06/2017 The major U.S. indexes were up-and-down early on Wednesday, before each settled into range-bound paths that persisted through most of the final hours. The NASDAQ 100 continued to recover from its trying open to the week and outperformed its blue chip and broad-based counterparts.

Stock Market Today: December 5, 2017

12/05/2017 After posting selective gains through most of the morning hours, the market adopted a negative tone during the second half of Tuesday’s trading. The primary factor at play remains the Senate’s recently approved tax reform bill, which sent the Dow and S&P 500 to all-time highs early in the week. Since yesterday’s opening bell, however, investors appear to be taking advantage of the elevated valuations as the specifics of the proposal are digested.
