Stock Market Today: September 18, 2020
Harvey S. Katz, CFA | 09/18/2020
The stock market, which had moved irregularly higher over the first three trading days of this week following a setback to start the often trying month of September, began the latest session sharply to the downside. Ultimately, the blue chips would finish off by 130 points, while the tech-heavy NASDAQ would conclude matters with a 140-point deficit. Looking to the day ahead, the market is suggesting a somewhat higher start to the day's activity, with nice strength indicated in the NASDAQ.
