Stock Market Today: September 20, 2018

The U.S. equity market turned in a mixed performance yesterday that had a bit of a bearish undertone. On the positive side was a more-than-100-point advance for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and a four-point gain for the broader S&P 500 Index. Conversely, the tech-heavy NASDAQ Composite, the S&P Mid-Cap 400 Index, and the small-cap Russell 2000 all finished in the red. The driving force behind trading was again uncertainty about what impact the ongoing trade dispute between the United States and China will have on the global economy.
