03/10/2021 The correction in the tech-driven NASDAQ--defined as a decline of more than  10%--came to a seeming end yesterday, as that composite posted a big wire-to-wire win on a huge comeback by beaten-down tech names. Leading the way were shares of electric car maker Tesla (TSLA), retail giant Amazon (AMZN), and iconic iPhone maker Apple Inc. (AAPL). The Dow Jones Industrial Average also posted a strong advance for much of the session before wilting near the close to end barely in positive territory.

03/08/2021 The name of the game on Wall Street these days is volatility. It was front and center last week, with a number of pronounced swings in trading seen during the five-day stretch. The major averages started the week on a positive note, then suffered a number of setbacks before rallying forcefully on Friday. The rebound on the week’s final day pushed the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 Index into positive territory for the week and narrowed the loss for the NASDAQ Composite.

03/03/2021 After entering March like a lion, with a better-than-600-point surge in the Dow Jones Industrial Average on Monday, things quieted down to a more lamb-like performance yesterday. Bond yields stabilized and there was little of note on the economic front. So, stocks mainly drifted lower, with more early weakness in the NASDAQ than on either the Dow or the S&P 500. Stocks then closed on a major down note.

Over the course of the five-day stretch, we saw some bifurcated performances, with disparate results from the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the NASDAQ Composite, but the overall undertone was decisively bearish.

02/05/2021 The brief downturn in the stock market, which took the major averages into the minus column for the month of  January, has ended, brought to an end by a surge of optimism on faster vaccine distributions, better economic metrics, and solid corporate profits. Specifically, with regard to the economy, a survey issued moments ago by the Labor Department showed decent, but not especially encouraging, figures on non-farm payrolls for the month of January. That report followed improving data on weekly jobless filings issued yesterday.

02/04/2021 The major equity indexes took a bit of a breather yesterday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, the broader S&P 500 Index, and the tech-heavy NASDAQ Composite were not too far removed from the neutral line. The Dow 30, S&P 500 Index were slightly higher, while the NASDAQ finished modestly in the red. Before the open, the equity futures point to a modestly higher start stateside. Our sense is that investors may be a bit apprehensive about making another major move ahead of the much-anticipated monthly employment data from the Labor Department out on Friday, which may provide clues about how the United States economy is faring as the coronavirus pandemic rages on.
