09/04/2020 Wall Street opened for trading yesterday morning on a generally lower note, with a sharp retreat in an overbought NASDAQ Composite leading the way lower. The Dow Jones Industrial Average opened slightly to the upside, meantime, as buying was continuing for a second straight day in some of the more depressed blue chip issues.

This latest move forward comes after a strong August that produced a string of all-time highs for the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ.
