Stock Market Today

January 19, 2018

The U.S. stock market largely shook off fears of a government shutdown on Friday, with the majority of equities advancing over the course of the session. The indexes were more mixed, especially early on, but the S&P 500 and NASDAQ 100 eventually realized solid gains in the afternoon hours, rising once more to new intraday highs in the final half hour of trading. The Dow was less impressive, but did rebound from a 60-plus point deficit and finished the day in positive territory, back above the 26,000-point threshold. Overall, gaining shares essentially doubled declining issues. Read more

    January 18, 2018

    Harvey S. Katz, CFA and Robert Harrington | 1/18/2018
    On a day that saw many equities slip from recently set all-time highs, the major U.S. indexes exhibited modest weakness. The Dow, which opened slightly higher, fell quickly into the red and scarcely showed signs of a recovery. The S&P 500 and NASDAQ were a bit more resilient at times, with each composite group rising briefly above their respective breakeven line in the afternoon. But a late-day selloff saw each index fall sharply, while overall breadth favored declining issues (which outnumbered advancers two-to-one).
