Stock Market Today: January 29, 2015
Stocks broke out of the gate to the upside today, then slipped into negative territory, and are mixed to moderately lower around the noon hour on the East Coast. In terms of the major averages, the Dow Jones Industrials is up 67 points; the NASDAQ is down six points; and the S&P 500 is up a point. Market breadth points to a bearish tone, with the number of declining issues ahead of advancers on both the New York Stock Exchange and the NASDAQ. There are also more stocks hitting fresh 52-week lows than highs for a change, reflecting the recent market weakness.
