Stock Market Today: December 4, 2019(2)

12/3/2019 7:48:43 AM The stock market opened nicely higher this morning, and managed to build on these gains through much of the afternoon. Sentiment improved quite a bit today, fueled by reports that trade negotiations with China were still progressing. At the end of the session, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was ahead 149 points; the broader S&P 500 Index was up 20 points; and the NASDAQ was higher by 46 points. Market breadth showed that the bulls were back in control, with almost all of the major equity sectors pressing ahead. Today’s advance was encouraging, as it followed a number of weak sessions, and might suggest that the market is regaining some footing. Elsewhere, investors shrugged off a couple of soft economic reports this morning, as they were busy concentrating on global issues. Looking ahead, the November employment report is due out on Friday, and that issuance will likely receive a good deal of attention.

Stock Market Today: November 22, 2019

11/22/2019 9:01:05 AM The stock market opened higher this morning, then pulled back briefly, but managed to make some selective progress in the afternoon. Traders continued to hope that a trade deal between the U.S. and China could be reached in the near future. However, given the history of setbacks on that front, many on Wall Street are likely viewing the situation with some caution. At the end of trading today, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was ahead 109 points; the broader S&P 500 Index was up seven points; and the NASDAQ was higher by 14 points. Market breadth was constructive, as advancers outnumbered decliners by a comfortable margin on the NYSE.

Stock Market Today: November 21, 2019

11/21/2019 8:49:54 AM The stock market started lower today, as sentiment for a trade deal between the United States and China weakened. The higher levels of uncertainty caused the markets to fall a bit, while in other news, weekly initial jobless claims remained at a five-month high. Too, a few quarterly earnings results out of retailers were weaker than expected.  All told, the Dow closed off by 55 points; the NASDAQ lost 21 points; and the S&P 500 was down five points, closing in the red for the third time in a row.

Stock Market Today: November 20, 2019

11/20/2019 8:46:18 AM Stocks fell on Wednesday, but finished off of their lows, as trade talks with China showed signs of slipping into next year without progress. The market opened moderately lower on the lack of a catalyst. Truthfully, a lot went right on Wall Street in recent weeks when the major averages were setting record highs. Optimism that a trade deal with China could be reached, solid corporate earnings, lower interest rates, and the feeling that the economy would pick up in 2020 combined to fuel a surge in stocks.
