Stock Market Today

March 27, 2015

The month of March, which has only two more trading days left before the books are closed, has been a wild one for investors. We need look no further than the last fortnight of trading for such confirmation. A difficult five-day stretch for those long equities this week, which closed on a slightly upbeat note, followed last week’s very bullish stretch. For the most part, the month has produced a rollercoaster ride for traders and that may not change early next week, as we may see some window dressing as the first-quarter comes to a close. Read more

    March 26, 2015

    Harvey S. Katz, Matthew E. Spencer, Simon E. Shnayder, Adam Rosner | 3/26/2015

At the close of trading, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 40 points; the broader S&P 500 Index was off five points; and the NASDAQ was lower by 13 points. The majority of stocks lost ground today, as declining issues outnumbered advancers by a healthy margin on the NYSE.
