Stock Market Today: March 25, 2020

03/25/2020 Yesterday was the best day for stocks since 1933 in percentage terms, with the gain for the Dow Industrials of 2,113 being the largest ever. Moreover, the S&P 500 would tack on 210 points and the NASDAQ would jump 557 points. Stock gains were largely a result of the passage of a stimulus package. The bill came to fruition in the early hours of the morning. Still, as we look ahead to a new day and after yesterday's fireworks, the U.S. futures are pointing to a slightly lower start this morning, despite the stimulus package.

Stock Market Today: March 6, 2020

03/06/2020 One day after the stock market had surged for the second time in three sessions, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average climbing almost 1,200 points on Wednesday, the sellers were back. To recap the week, on Monday, news that the world's central banks were intervening to limit the damage from the coronavirus, sent stocks surging. Then, on Tuesday, a 50 basis-point cut in the federal funds rate target by the Federal Reserve brought back the sellers, as investors became frightened by such dramatic action.

Stock Market Today: February 4, 2020

02/04/2020 The major U.S. equity indexes spent much of the first trading session of February and the new week retracing some of last Friday’s outsized losses. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, the NASDAQ Composite, and the broader S&P 500 Index started the session with perhaps some bargain hunting and then quickly moved higher, with the index of the 30 bellwether companies up nearly 350 points less than an hour into trading. The equity averages, including the Dow 30, did pull back a bit over the course of the session, but were able to erase a portion of Friday’s setback by the closing bell.

02/03/2020 The stockmarketopened nicely higher, softened later in the morning, but still managed to hold onto some of its gains through the afternoon. Investor sentiment seemed a bit more upbeat earlier today, even though the Coronavirus remains a key area of uncertainty. Perhaps, some traders on Wall Street are hoping that the illness can be contained, and that a medical cure will soon be presented. At the close of today’s session, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was ahead almost 144 points; the broader S&P 500 Index was 23 points, and the technology-heavy NASDAQ was higher by 122 points.

Stock Market Today: January 3, 2020

01/03/2020 The market futures started out slightly positively for a brief spell last night as a continuation of yesterday’s rally seemed likely today. However, once news broke that the United States military had killed General Qassem Soleimani of Iran in a drone strike, the futures market fell quickly, while oil prices rose as much as 4% overnight. Traders were unclear how and when Iran would respond and how this affects the geopolitical climate.

Stock Market Today: December 4, 2019(2)

12/04/2019 The stock market opened nicely higher this morning, and managed to build on these gains through much of the afternoon. Sentiment improved quite a bit today, fueled by reports that trade negotiations with China were still progressing. At the end of the session, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was ahead 149 points; the broader S&P 500 Index was up 20 points; and the NASDAQ was higher by 46 points. Market breadth showed that the bulls were back in control, with almost all of the major equity sectors pressing ahead. Today’s advance was encouraging, as it followed a number of weak sessions, and might suggest that the market is regaining some footing. Elsewhere, investors shrugged off a couple of soft economic reports this morning, as they were busy concentrating on global issues. Looking ahead, the November employment report is due out on Friday, and that issuance will likely receive a good deal of attention.
