Stock Market Today: August 5, 2020

Another day, another morning's rise for the U.S. stock market. Equities stayed on a winning track through most of the day yesterday into the close, with the Dow ending up a session-best 164 points. More modest gains were tabulated by the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ. Now, looking out at a new day, and following generally narrow advances by the U.S. equity futures last evening and ahead of key economic reports today, tomorrow, and Friday, the equity futures now are pointing to a nicely higher opening when trading resumes.
