    Stock Market Today: March 25, 2019
    William G. Ferguson and Adam Rosner  |  03/25/2019
    The stock market started the new week on Wall Street with a choppy performance. Some of the early weakness today was likely due to concerns that a softer global economic outlook could put a damper on business on our shores. At the end of trading, the major averages were mixed. Specifically, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was ahead about 15 points; the S&P 500 Index was down slightly; and the NASDAQ was lower by five points.

    Stocks fell sharply to close the week on concerns over the health of the global economy. At the close, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 460 points; the NASDAQ lost 196 points; and the S&P 500 sank 54 points. Market breadth affirmed the weakness on the major averages, as declining stocks easily outpaced advancing issues. Today’s troubles started overseas, where data showed an index of German manufacturing fell to its lowest level since 2012.

    The stock market got off a sluggish start this morning, but then proceeded to advance at a strong pace for much of the day. Of note, traders were feeling more optimistic about the technology sector, in particular, and that helped push the broad market higher. At the end of the session, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was ahead 217 points; the S&P 500 Index was up 31 points; and the NASDAQ, which displayed leadership, was higher by 110 points.

    The stock market traded lower this morning, rebounded briefly in the mid-afternoon after the conclusion of the FOMC meeting, but retreated again later in the day. Much of the market volatility today was due to investor concerns about the economy, and the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy, in particular. At the end of the session, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 142 points; the S&P 500 Index was off eight points; while the NASDAQ managed to remain in positive territory, closing nominally higher.
