Stock Market Today

November 12, 2019

The equity markets pressed ahead earlier this morning, but gradually retreated as the day unfolded, before firming again at the end. Of note, Wall Street continues to look for signs that a trade deal between the U.S. and China will materialize in the near future. However, it is still unclear if, and when, such a development might take place. No doubt, the shifting situation, and remarks from the Administration, have added some choppiness to the market lately. At the end of trading today, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was unchanged; the broader S&P 500 Index was ahead five points; and the NASDAQ was higher by 22 points. Read more

    The market started trading lower on the Veterans’ Day holiday, as sentimentfell concerning a U.S. trade deal with China. Traders sent the Dow Jones Industrial Average down 164 points, while the other indices were lower in tandem. However, a few news stories broke throughout the day, which helped to lift the markets higher. These included that Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA), a Dow-component company, received a takeout proposal from a public/private equity company. Additionally, Boeing (BA) provided an update on its 737 MAX planes. Management stated that if the FAA accepts the company's updated training requirements, they are expecting customer deliveries in December and that they expect commercial service to begin in January. These reports sent the market higher, and the Dow eventually reached the green. However, the S&P 500 and NASDAQ remained below breakeven levels. All told, the Dow closed higher by 10 points, eking out a record close. On the other hand, the S&P 500 was down six points, and the NASDAQ was off by 11 points.
