Katz, Adam Rosner, and Robert Harrington | 09/01/2016The U.S. stock market registered another loss on Wednesday, with all three major indexes finishing in the red for the day. Equities began the morning lower, and the selloff was stable throughout most of the trading session, with declining issues outnumbering gaining stocks by a significant margin. Late in the afternoon, a modicum of buying resulted in the utilities and financial sectors salvaging slight profits for the day.Market Daily UpdatesStock Market Today: August 30, 2016William G. Ferguson, Mario Ferro, and Robert Mitkowski | 08/30/2016Stocks fell moderately today as renewed concerns regarding a rise in interest rates dampened sentiment. Economic data released showed a rise in consumer confidence that investors seemed to interpret as a sign of a healthy economy that, in turn, could give the Federal Reserve the leeway to raise interest rates. At the close, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 49 points; the NASDAQ was off nine points; and the broader S&P 500 lost four points.Market Daily UpdatesStock Market Today: August 29, 2016Harvey S. Katz, Mario Ferro, Robert Mitkowski | 08/29/2016Stocks on Wall Street broke out of a three-day slump to open the week following some positive news on the U.S. economy. At the close of trading, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 108 points; the NASDAQ climbed 13 points; and the S&P 500 added 11 points. Market breadth affirmed the bullish sentiment, with more than two stocks rising for every one falling on the New York Stock Exchange and a healthy five-to-three edge for winners over declining issues on the NASDAQ.Market Daily UpdatesStock Market Today: August 26, 2016Harvey S. Katz, Adam Rosner, and Robert Harrington | 08/26/2016Most stocks concluded the up-and-down week in the red, starting very strongly in the early session hours before dropping off around lunchtime in New York. But declining issues more-than doubled the number of gainers before a late-in-the-day buying spree drove more issues into positive territory at the close. Healthcare and utility stocks bounced back from early-week softness, while those in the basic materials, telecommunications, and utilities sectors fared particularly poorly. The indexes were more nuanced. Each of the S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average, and NASDAQ were down for most of the day until an upturn in the final hour turned the tech-laden latters fortunes around. By days end, the group had registered a seven-point gain.Market Daily UpdatesStock Market Today: August 25, 2016Harvey S. Katz, Robert Harrington, and Adam Rosner | 08/25/2016The U.S. stock market opened lower this morning, managed to rally in the early afternoon, but ultimately closed on a weak note. At the end of trading, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 33 points; the S&P 500 Index was off three points; and the NASDAQ was lower by five points. Nonetheless, market breadth was mixed, with advancers about even with decliners on the NYSE. Further, the main equity sectors put in a divided performance.
