5/3/2021 8:59:34 AM Trading in the month of May—fresh off a 30-day stretch that saw the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the S&P 500 Index, and the NASDAQ Composite produce respective gains of 2.7%, 5.2%, and 5.4%--will begin with investors focused on many of the same issues that drove the market in April.

Stock Market Today: April 30, 2021

4/30/2021 9:05:00 AM Two key reports will be issued this morning. In the first release, the Commerce Department noted that personal income and consumer spending both moved up strongly in March, and in line with expectations. Later this morning, the University of Michigan will issue data on consumer sentiment. These reports will follow a release yesterday on first-quarter GDP, which showed a 6.4% annualized rate of growth, but also contained unsettling news on inflation, with the Price Index rising 4.1% during the period.

Stock Market Today: April 27, 2021

4/27/2021 9:15:32 AM As we look to the new day,U.S. stock futures are suggesting the major indexes will have a mixed open. Earnings season remains in high gear, and so far, results in general have been good, with aggregate earnings showing their biggest quarterly advance in more than a decade. Even so, it appears unlikely that there will be any policy changes announced at the FOMC meeting this Wednesday.

Stock Market Today: March 8, 2021

3/8/2021 8:40:24 AM The name of the game on Wall Street these days is volatility. It was front and center last week, with a number of pronounced swings in trading seen during the five-day stretch. The major averages started the week on a positive note, then suffered a number of setbacks before rallying forcefully on Friday. The rebound on the week’s final day pushed the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 Index into positive territory for the week and narrowed the loss for the NASDAQ Composite.

Stock Market Today:February 26, 2021

2/26/2021 8:06:27 AM It continues to be all about interest rates, or more specifically about rapidly rising yields on the U.S. 10-year Treasury notes and the companion 30-year Treasury bond. The fears continue to be that those increasing yields, which are a consequence of an improving economy and greater pricing pressures, will prove competition for stocks. This was clearly the case yesterday when a trio of strong economic readings pushed the 10-year Treasury note yield briefly past 1.61%--or four times the low seen in 2020. Stocks plummeted as a result.

Stock Market Today: February 8, 2021

2/8/2021 9:09:05 AM Wall Street will shortly start the second week of February following a steady run of advances over the initial five-day trading span. Better economic data, optimism about an uptick in vaccinations, expectations that new stimulus spending and relief payments will be passed, and a diminution in the  trading frenzy in previously low profile issues seen in late January all contributed to the market's uptick and should combine to lift the spirits of investors going forward.

Stock Market Today: January 27, 2021

1/27/2021 9:13:31 AM Wall Street started the new week on a mixed note on Monday with few decisive moves one way or the other. And during yesterday’s session, the market's late rally, spurred by positive earnings, developments on the coronavirus vaccination front, and news from Washington D.C., could not be sustained, and stocks would sell off a little at the close, leaving the three major large-cap indexes nominally in the red for the day. Looking to the day ahead, the U.S. equity futures are pointing to modest profit taking.
