Stock Market Today: April 28, 2021

4/28/2021 8:30:55 AM We now approach the middle trading day of this event-filled week on Wall Street. Highlighting the comings and goings in the equity market will be a series of earnings reports, some of which will feature big names in the technology space. Also of note, the Federal Reserve will conclude its two-day FOMC meeting this afternoon. No changes in borrowing costs are likely to be even hinted at, while the accompanying monetary statement will almost assuredly suggest further accommodative policies will follow.

Stock Market Today: March 26, 2021

3/26/2021 8:25:19 AM Volatility is really increasing down on Wall Street, with yesterday's session showing a succession of up-and-down moves on each of the indexes. On point, the Dow Jones Industrial Average started the session sharply in the red, with an early loss of more than 300 points. Then, after bottoming out in the first 90 minutes of trading, the blue chips turned higher for the rest of the session, finally closing within 50 points of their best level of the day.

Stock Market Today: March 24, 2021

3/24/2021 9:10:49 AM The stock market began the new week on a positive note on Monday as each of the major indexes rose on the day on optimism about the economy and vaccines and a drop in Treasury yields, as inflation concerns seemed to cool. However, that upbeat combination was not enough to keep the buyers happy yesterday and while the backdrop remained compelling, the equity market would drift lower for much of the session and end matters near their lows for the day. Looking ahead, the futures are pointing to a higher opening this morning, as the Street seeks to recoversome of yesterday's losses at the open.

Stock Market Today: November 25, 2020

11/25/2020 9:15:33 AM It was a heavy news day that greeted Wall Street investors yesterday morning, as key economic and political developments unfolded. On the business side, we saw a rather listless survey on consumer confidence issued, with rising COVID-19 cases apparently leading to a modest dip in that index. On the political front, meantime, the last 24 hours yielded further progress in finally starting to bring about an official transition between the outgoing Administration in Washington and the incoming one headed by President-Elect Joe Biden.

Stock Market Today: September 29, 2020

9/29/2020 9:29:18 AM Wall Street soared higher yesterday, building on Friday’s advance. Traders were injected with a boost of confidence following reports that House Democrats would try to push ahead with a stimulus package, with a vote possibly early next month. As we look to the new day, stocks in Asian markets turned in a mixed performance, and the European bourses are trading down slightly. Meanwhile, U.S. stock futures are suggesting the major indexes will open with modest declines, and crude oil prices have slipped about half a percentage point.

Stock Market Today: September 10, 2020

9/10/2020 9:19:47 AM The third time was apparently the charm. To wit, after the stock market fell for three days in succession, Wall Street reversed course yesterday, thanks to a strong comeback in tech stocks. A new day is upon us, and to get a glimpse of whether yesterday's comeback rally will extend itself, we look to the futures, which now are suggesting a modestly higher opening when trading resumes this morning.

Stock Market Today: August 12, 2020

8/12/2020 8:36:28 AM The winning streak continued on Wall Street for much of the session yesterday. Indeed, after gaining nicely last week, and advancing further on Monday, the stock market was off and running again yesterday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average quickly jumping out to a-more-than 350-point advance. The S&P 500 Index closed in on a record high, meantime. Only the NASDAQ, which until recently had been a stock market leader, lagged behind throughout the day on further weakness in technology, most notably shares of Apple (AAPL).

Stock Market Today: June 30, 2020

6/30/2020 9:15:52 AM U.S. stocks began the holiday-shortened trading week with a sharp move higher. Strong housing data helped kick start the day into high gear. This good news was enough to outweigh concerns over COVID-19 flare-ups in several states, which forced local governments to put reopening plans on hold, or even take a few steps back. As we look to the new day, U.S. stock futures are suggesting the major indexes will open with a modest decline.
