Stock Market Today

February 24, 2017

The final day of the holiday-shortened trading week was a directionless one for Wall Street. With the major U.S. equity indexes either at or near record highs in recent days, today’s trading session saw some early selective profit taking, though the selling was always well contained, and left the door open for a partial late-day rally, which took place in the final hour. At the closing bell, the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the NASDAQ, and the broader S&P 500 Index, which were all lower for most of the session, were able to rally into positive territory, albeit just modestly. Read more

    Thursday’s market breadth was roughly even, with widespread selling amongst mid- and small-cap equities offsetting an afternoon rally principally by the Dow Jones Industrial Average. After solid openings, and subsequent pullbacks into the red, the Dow and, to a lesser degree, the S&P 500 strengthened as the day wore on. The former added 35 points on its way to setting yet another all-time closing high, while the latter salvaged a modest gain by the closing bell. The NASDAQ, meanwhile, was unable to turn its fortunes around, and saw the end of its fifteen-day streak of gains.

    It was harder to find buyers on Wall Street today as stocks broadly fell, although the Dow Jones Industrial Average was an exception, turning in a modest 33-point gain. Elsewhere, though, the tone was tilted to the downside, with the NASDAQ easing five points and the broader S&P 500 pulling back a few points. The market’s tone was perhaps most evident in the poor advance-decline  lines apparent on both the New York Stock Exchange and the NASDAQ, where losers topped winners by respective 4-to-3 and 3-to-2 margins.
